2 TRANSITION PROGRAMS Our programs are designed to help students explore careers while still in high school and move seamlessly to post secondary or a career.

3 Job Forecast

4 Educational Requirements



7 69% of parents hope their children will attend University – Fact: 16% in BC do – Fact: Even less complete a degree – Fact: Between 2001-2013 29% of job openings will require a University degree – Fact: 44% will require other post-secondary training Educational Reality

8 2 in 10 students actually attend University What about the other 80% ? – Some find work, some take upgrading classes, some drift around for a few years before making a decision – Many return later on to take trades or technical training Educational Reality

9 WORK EXPERIENCE Research has shown students that focus their studies in specific career areas are more engaged in school, do much better academically, are more likely to graduate. Students should sign up for one of the 8 focus areas to obtain a “on the job” work experience. Students are not required to take 5 specific courses prior to going out on Work Experience as in the past. Work Experience can be paid or unpaid. Work Experience will also satisfy the requirement for Grad Transitions. Also available is a online version of the pre-employment course
