Career Development

Comprehensive career development helps students to discover their interests, talents, abilities, and the different ways these talents and abilities might be used. It also equips students with research skills to enable them to form a realistic picture of job opportunities. The skills learned through comprehensive career development are also lifework planning skills because students will use them repeatedly over the course of their lifetimes. Because of the breadth of comprehensive career development, it needs the involvement of all school staff, parents, and the greater community to help students learn lifework planning skills.
