The PreVet program is designed for students in the middle years and explores ideas around work culture and the value of literacy and numeracy in working life. It is a vast, multi-layered website providing student and teacher resources promoting job pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people in remote northern Australia. The site describes 26 job pathways organised under 18 topic headings. Resources highlight the experiences of people working in communities and presents realistic and achievable career options for students. Each topic includes a magazine introducing a role model and relevant job pathways; a rich lesson (a zipped file of lesson plans and student worksheets), multimedia games, an interactive quiz, teacher notes and transcripts of all texts. Each magazine is replete with videos, showing people talking about their work and carrying out its activities; while the numerous interactive student activities throughout each topic focus on the literacy and numeracy skills employed in that pathway.
