CATE 2020 Abstracts

The theme for the 2021 CATE conference is ‘He Tangata’ -- recognising that it is people who are at the heart of all we do.  As career practitioners in schools, we work with young people and their transition from school to the next phase of their lives.  Our work is uniquely intertwined with the well-being of our students, opening them up to opportunities and broadening their horizons.

We invite you to share your research, your best practice, your tools and techniques, and tell your stories in workshops with your careers colleagues from around the country. Please submit abstracts for workshops under the following three key sub-themes:
