Year13 co-founder Will Stubley said “Good Education Group joining us is both synergistic and a growth strategy. Now school leavers and others planning their tertiary education can access a broader suite of tools, information, perspectives and ratings, all through Year13.

“Our ability to empower and support Gen Z to reach their potential grows with the group, and we’re making solid progress toward our mission of upgrading the school to work transition. We’re pleased to welcome The Good Education Group and their expert team to Year13.”

National partnerships director Annie Mulders said “The Good Education Group grows Year13’s data capability and audience footprint with young people, parents and schools, providing a unique opportunity for brands and industry to connect with youth as they are making big decisions about their future, experiencing life firsts, and establishing their foundational perceptions of brands”

The Good Universities Guide is the most referenced resource for tertiary studies in Australia, supporting students, careers advisors, schools and parents with post school education pathways including all University courses, all Tafe courses and all Registered Training Organisation courses. GUG’s course search widget is integrated into more than 1200 highschool websites and most career platforms. The Good Careers Guide provides information on over 600 careers and lives within the Good Universities Guide site.

Good Education Media Group general manager Ross White said “We are delighted to take the Good Education Group into full integration with the Year13 product suite. Having worked well with Year13 through Career Tools, we both saw the opportunity to bring The Good Education Group resources and deep data on schools, tertiary educators and students to the Year13 platform”

Alongside career education, Year13 works with a range of brands to provide young people with life skills and support their wellbeing, including Westpac on Financial Literacy, CeraVe on managing teen skin, Visa on life learnings gained through sports participation, Microsoft on digital skills, Levi’s on sustainability, and Scape on moving out of home for the first time.
