Brief Outline




Course introduction and Brightspace Training

Module 1

Personal Development . Module 1 looks at a model of “explore, flow and pivot”. It will also introduce students to the Holland Tool and Career Cluster. Students will learn to set short- and long-term goals as well as explore entrepreneurship.

Module 2

Connections to community . In this module, you will be thinking about your personal allies and what information and tips they might give you for your post-secondary planning and career planning. You will also use what you learned from your Holland profile and the types of possible careers that match your profile to look at job prospects that are in both local and global markets. Finally, you’ll be involved in a project where you will be connecting with your community.

Module 3

Life and Career Path . This last module will have you learning about the new graduation requirements and how the curriculum will become more individualized and flexible for students. Furthermore, we explore how your online presence or digital identity is important in defining who you are when employers look at your job application and post-secondary admissions look at your entrance applications.

Also, you will be learning more about your rights and responsibilities as a worker and how to identify and reduce potential hazards and dangers in a work environment. Your project for this module will have you in a "first job" simulation.
