About the Real Game series

The Real Game Series is a set of popular living, learning and earning resources for use in primary and secondary schools. It delivers careers and personal development in style.
The resource is a series of classroom-based programmes, developed to help students learn more about themselves and both the opportunities and the responsibilities of adult life in a fun and constructive way.
Students learn:

  • the importance of education and qualifications in getting the jobs they want;
  • how occupational choice impacts upon lifestyle;
  • how to balance monthly income and leisure time; and
  • the roles and responsibilities of the community.
The resources deliver a comprehensive and progressive programme, covering learning outcomes from all KLAs.

A key attribute of the resources is their flexibility. They can be used as an individual subject resource, cross curricula for personal development (particularly where timetable allocation is limited) or as part of an enrichment programme.
The games in the series are individual and can be adapted to meet the needs of students. Each comes complete with:

  • Comprehensive lesson plans
  • Quality, colourful support materials
There are 5 games in the series:
  • The Play Real Game for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6
  • The Make It Real Game for Years 5, 6, 7 & 8
  • The Real Game for Years 7, 8 & 9
  • The Be Real Game for Years 9, 10 & 11
  • The Get Real Game for young people over 16 years of age

Who is this workshop for?
Careers Advisers, Year Advisers, Stage Advisers, Teachers (any KLA), Student Welfare personnel, Curriculum leaders

The Real Game Series Workshop includes:
Day 1: A summary of all five games with a focus on linking each game to syllabus and career development outcomes.

Day 2: Participants will pick the game they wish to make their focus for this day. They will form groups and play their chosen game from start to finish with the support of facilitators.

After playing the game and noting skills, knowledge and understanding required as a prerequisite and also those developed during the game, participants will plan the integration of their chosen game into their faculty's and/ or school’s curriculum.

Cost:
Day 1 only - $253.00 (incl GST)
Day 2 only - $253.00 (incl GST)
Both days - $462.00 (incl GST)

Note: Please check in your school for Real Game kits – maybe in the Careers Adviser’s office. If your school does not have a copy of the game you are interested in, please contact WSC to see if there are any spares. We have limited stock available and we may need to order additional kits.
