GENERATION is a new study following the journey of young Australians, as they transition to life beyond school.

This landmark study of over 70,000 students across the country aims to reflect the collective experience of young Australians – inside and outside school, while providing both participants and educators valuable insights into career interests and post-school plans.

GENERATION is giving young people a voice to help shape the future of education for generations to come.

Your school is participating in the first survey of GENERATION, which will be conducted with Year 10 students from MAY – NOV 2022.
What does it mean for me?
GENERATION is a chance to share your unique story – what you care about, what you're interested in, and what you hope for in the future. You will be asked to voluntarily participate in a 30 minute online survey. You have the right to withdraw from the study at any time, and have your information removed from further use.
