Careers in History
The Careers in History print and video resources highlight the key skills that students develop when they study History, as well as the career pathways they can pursue.
This free-to-download suite is designed to help students and parents understand how studying History can lead to strong employment prospects, in-demand skills, personal growth and community wellbeing.
We hope these resources help you inspire young people to continue studying History, or to foster their passion for this wonderful subject. They can be distributed at subject-selection events and careers fairs, posted up in History classrooms and staff rooms, or simply sent to a student who is talking with you about their subject choices. Please be sure to share these with your school or university careers counsellors.
HTAV would like to acknowledge the support of the Victorian Government and the Department of Education and Training.
All schools, universities, history teachers’ associations and historical associations are welcome to provide their members and networks with the link to the resources.
