Introducing The Be Real Game Online

The Be Real Game, first introduced in Australia in 2002, has been updated and is now available in full digital form online, designed for face-to-face or remote delivery using meeting software such as Microsoft Teams and ZOOM.

The Be Real Game Online is a career exploration program which introduces participants to the world of work, the forces affecting changes, the challenges and the necessary skills needed to live and work in our modern world.

Designed for delivery to students in Years 9 – 12, and young people aged 15 – 24, The Be Real Game Online involves participants in role play, online activities and interaction with other participants, as they explore life as an adult seeking work, while gaining an awareness of the implications of their choices and the importance of education, training and planning to attaining their goals.

Participants, in their roles, explore budgetary and time implications of working, and function as members of a community, developing a firm grasp of the correlation between education, income and job satisfaction.

Throughout The Be Real Game Online there is a focus on the development of Digital Literacy Skills and Transferable Skills.

The Be Real Game Online maintains the focus of the original version on career and life/work roles being managed and experienced in a safe environment with the support of a Facilitator – Careers Adviser, teacher or mentor.

All information, documents and activities are available using webpages, PDF and/or Microsoft Word and are compatible with Google Classroom.

The Be Real Game Online is available FREE to all NSW government, Catholic and Independent schools.
