CAREERS SEARCH

The Career Center is a resource to students to research post-secondary options, financial award information and processes, and career exploration.  Students start their guided explorations in Planning 10. Their post secondary planning continues through Grade 11 and 12, with a demonstration of their final PSI Plan during the Exit Interview of Graduation Transitions.  Websites often utilized to facilitate career exploration include www.myblueprint.ca  ,  www.educationplannerbc.ca  , and  www.bced.gov.bc/exams as well as individual college/university  websites.  Students  are encouraged to check with post-secondary institutions on a regular basis regarding entrance requirements, application deadlines, and financial opportunities as changes occur regularly. Email your Career Advisor for an appointment:

WORK EXPERIENCE (WEX)

Volunteer or paid Work Experience is required for Graduation and students who need assistance in finding the required 30-hour placement should contact the WEX Advisor, Mrs. Tourand. However, some students my opt for more WEX hours to help them determine career paths.  So, students may choose to enroll in a 4 credit course that requires 100 hours of job/career related experience(s) and these are completed outside of the students  regular timetable. Students may access career education, training, and placements with community based employers by contacting Mrs. Tourand. These WEX placements are entirely student-driven, which means that students need to take the initiative to request a placement. Placements are based on student preference including:  type of work; location; and schedule. Please refer to the Course Planning online booklet (under Programs & Courses) for more complete information on WEX and/or mail the WEX Advisor for an appointment:
