Matching talents and interests with future pathway options, Bulls-Eye empowers young people to explore future pathways and make informed career decisions.
How It Works
In New Zealand Bulls-Eye is available as an integrated add on to the Career Central programme with access to the Bulls-Eye module via the dashboard.
Bulls-Eye combines traditional career theory with up to date research on the future of work and occupational demand in online quiz-style format.
Work Clusters Quiz
The Work Clusters Quiz utilises the research of Dr John Holland, and, the Tertiary Education Commission’s occupational cluster framework to identify broad career clusters for students that align with their preferences and interests. This is a short assessment (five to ten minutes to complete) with simple language and visual elements. Designed and developed in 2019, this quiz is suitable for junior students, or, students with English as a second language,
Future Pathways Assesment
The Future Pathways Assessment (FPA) is a deeper occupational assessment that provides students with ranked results against 27 pathways, as well as access to study and qualifications information, pathway research, and, extensive job data. The ANZSCO database and occupational demand data underpin the design. Suitable for capable students from Y9 to Y12, this assessment takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
Vocational Pathways Assesment
The Vocational Pathways Assessment (VPA) is a modified version of the FPA. This assessment utilises the same research base and occupational framework but results are focused on non-university pathways, job samples, and, vocational training options. The VPA is a great assessment to use with senior students who do not plan to pursue a university pathway when they leave school.
