The Importance of the Guidance and Career Education Curriculum

The guidance and career education program plays a central role in secondary school by providing students with the too​​ls they need for success in school, in the workplace, and in their daily lives. In particular, the curriculum focuses on skill development that will help students better manage their time, resources, and dealings with other people to improve their opportunities for success both in school and in their future lives. Courses in guidance and career education actively involve students in research, inquiry, problem-solving, and decision-making processes related to planning for postsecondary education, training, or work. The guidance and career education program is designed to recognize the diverse abilities, strengths, and aspirations of all students, providing them with knowledge and skills that will be benefit them throughout their lives. The goals of the guidance and career education curriculum are to enable students to:

  • understand concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships, and career planning;
  • develop learning skills, social skills, a sense of social responsibility, and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals;
  • apply this learning to their lives and work in the school and the community.
