Guidance and Career Education
The online guidance and career education program consists of courses that are intended to help students develop learning and interpersonal skills and to enable them to explore careers and the pathways that lead to them. All students are encouraged to explore and assess their own strengths, needs, and interests and to investigate a broad range of opportunities as they pursue their educational pathways and prepare for post-secondary destinations. At the centre of the guidance and career education program is the compulsory Grade 10 Career Studies course (GLC2O), in which students learn how to identify, investigate, and pursue goals in education, work, and community activity. This is a half-credit course that provides students with an introduction to self-assessment, development of personal and interpersonal skills, and a general understanding of career planning.
