Grade 10 Careers

Welcome to Careers!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Career Studies is a compulsory half credit course for all Ontario secondary school students. The purpose of the Career Studies course is to equip students to intelligently and purposefully interact with their world (now and in the future) so that they live, work, and participate in it as satisfied and contributing members of society. Student learning will include assessing their own knowledge, skills, characteristics, and investigating economic trends, workplace organization, work opportunities, and ways to search for work. The course explores post-secondary learning options, prepares students for community-based learning, and helps them build the capabilities needed for managing work and life transitions. Students will produce an Individual Pathway Plan (IPP) for pursuing their post-secondary goals.

What do we do?

This course will take place in a student-centred, blended-learning environment.  What this means is that instruction will sometimes occur in a traditional classroom setting, but that students will also be released to work individually and in groups as a member of an e-learning community.  Students will have the opportunity to explore their passions and possible pathways (in their careers and in life), while also developing their 21st Century skills as e-learners.

Major Tasks

The major tasks for this course create a student's Individual Pathway Plan (IPP).  During each unit of the course students complete tasks that add to their IPP.  If you click on the Course Content tab at the top of this page you can find a quick list and description of the assignments for this course..
