How do we work? What's our approach?

  • We have researched, created, tested and continue to improve our own career planning system.
  • We call our system the Smithells® Career Planning System (Smithells® System for short).
  • To create the Smithells® System, we looked at a lot of careers research and more than 120 systems worldwide.
  • We pinpointed what information is essential for young people to know, to make accurate career decisions.
  • The Smithells® System is a complete career planning system for 15-30 year olds.
  • The Smithells® System combines interactive online questionnaires with high quality face-to-face career counselling.
  • The Approved Smithells® Professionals are intensively trained and experienced in the use of the Smithells® System.
  • The model behind the Smithells® System is based on the uniqueness of each individual.
  • The career counselling process is based on the methods of Dr Alfred Adler and Dr Rudolf Dreikurs.
  • The Smithells® Career Planning System has proved effective for well over 20 years.
  • To date, over 20,000 young people have benefited from going through the Smithells® System.
  • The Smithells® Career Planning System is based on a sound understanding of:
    • career counselling and career planning
    • young people, their personal qualities, values, interests, skills and preferences
    • secondary school & tertiary qualifications and providers
    • school subjects and other requirements for entry to different jobs and occupations
    • the economy and labour market supply and demand across all industries and professions.
