Head – Careers Advisory, University of Cape Town

'We are excited at the fresh, future focused approach of 'This Better Work'. What the team has developed is relevant, engaging and completely in line with modern career development approaches.

'This has opened my eyes to what I am good at'


Grade 9 student, Pretoria

'I found this experience very helpful for me, before taking this course I was really confused and unsure about what I wanted to do. I wasn't sure about almost everything but this has opened my eyes to what I am good at, what i like doing, my character traits and from there the career opportunities i have through those things and the whole experience has organized my thoughts.'

'The adventure theme made everything much more fun and less daunting'


Grade 10 student, Cape Town

'Loved what you’re doing with this website - how it’s interactive and the whole adventure theme made everything much more fun and less daunting.'

'It's a guide to where you hope to be heading'


Grade 9 student, Sydney

'I have learnt that we don't need to have a plan A. To many students it's plan A or nothing. Instead with the term Plan X is different as it's a guide to the direction that you are interested in doing. It's a guide to where you hope to be heading rather than if your plan fails you having nothing left.'
