Exciting announcements from CAMET this afternoon for the field of career development in the Atlantic Provinces.
Atlantic Canada Career Week is set for Oct 31 - Nov 4
"Ministers are pleased to launch the Atlantic Canada Career Week,which will take place from October 31 to November 4, 2016 in all schools in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. The theme of the career week this year is Create Your Own Future, and is intended to support career development using a coordinated whole school approach, and to promote career development as an integral part of student learning. Student activities related to a specific theme will be introduced during each day and integrated into the existing curriculum."
A new study is set to launch next fall:
"As part of itsongoing commitment to solidify career transitioning in the region, CAMET has undertaken an analysis of the strengths and gaps in the transition of students from public to post-secondary education. The study, to be conducted by the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF), will be completed in the fall 2017.The result of the study will provide evidence-based information on how to provide better access to post-secondary education for students who take an indirect route to post-secondary education, maximize the number of students who graduate from post-secondary secondary education and training, and provide more opportunities for graduating students to find work in their fields of study."
