Overview 


Career exploration starts now.

From the moment our students enter the first day of kindergarten through to graduation, students have the opportunity to explore a variety of career paths. Our programs, resources, and networking opportunities, provide an opportunity for students to imagine their future possibilities.

 
The North Vancouver School District’s priorities for career education include:


1) career development course opportunities for all students;

2) enhancing work experience placements; and

3) dual credit program options.


These priorities have been identified in consultation with our Career Education stakeholders, including students, teachers, career counsellors and the business community. 

Encouraging students to examine and explore career pathways that align with their likes, interests while building skills and knowledge is key to their success.

 

A person’s career is considered their 'journey' through life, and the provincial Career Education curriculum offers students the opportunity to pursue this journey in ways that are personally meaningful and goal-oriented.

Students build confidence through their learning experience as they explore multiple career choices and get a head start on becoming successful, educated citizens.
