Introduction to Career Education

An introduction to how a person’s career is considered their “journey” through life, and how the Career Education curriculum offers students the opportunity to pursue this journey in personal, meaningful, and goal-oriented ways. Flexible teaching and learning is paramount in Developing Foundations (K-5), Exploring Possibilities (6-9), and Pursuing Preferred Futures (CLE and CLC) in Career-Life Development.

Ministry Career Education Goals and Rationale

The Career Education curriculum contributes to students’ development as educated citizens that can adapt to ongoing change with purposeful career-life development. It reflects on learning experiences both in and out of school and recognizes the importance of experiential learning, guidance from mentors, and community involvement.
