Career Education 9 Course Description September 2019
Career Education 9 (CE 9) is a provincially mandated subject for all Grade 9 students. At Lord Byng, this course is offered off-timetable. Students do NOT meet formally on a Day 1, Day 2 basis during a specific block as they do for other school subjects. However, students are responsible for participating in all learning opportunities and completing all assignments.
The Career Education program is designed to help students better understand themselves and others, as well as the rapidly changing workplace in order to be better equipped to become successful contributors to society when they leave Lord Byng Secondary.
Career Education 9 is based on the following three components, which will be delivered through English classes, workshops, and grade presentations: 1) Personal Development; 2) Connections to the Community; and 3) Life and Career Plan.
At the end of this course, successful students will have acquired some tools and resources for making informed decisions about future careers and healthy lifestyle choices.
