Technical FAQ’s & Links to Further Information
Career Central is an online Careers Management Platform that has been designed & developed for schools. The platform acts as a central place for schools to store student career information, and, allows students to logon and develop their career plans.
Career Central is cloud hosted, and has a localised installation running in Australia, on Amazon Web Services. This means you do not need to ‘host’ Career Central on your hardware.
Career Central connects to various school information systems (via Wonde, Australia) to automatically import student data. This prevents careers staff from having to manually import data, and, prevents new students from ‘slipping through the cracks’.
How does Career Central link?
As part of of our transparency policy, we use Wonde to connect to your school information system. Wonde is Australia’s trusted data connector for school information systems. Essentially, Wonde acts as the gate between your school and third party systems. Wonde is used to connect your SIS to other platforms as well. There is no cost to your school for Wonde.

Does data go from Career Central back into our SIS?
Nope – all the data created in Career Central lives in Career Central, and, doesn’t interfere with your SIS.
