Guidance and Career Education
Guidance and career education is a vital and integral part of the secondary program. Through this program, students are given opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills that they need in order to learn effectively, to live and to work cooperatively and productively, to set goals and monitor progress and to carry out their social responsibilities. The program is delivered through different means, including classroom instruction, through orientation and exit programs, career exploration activities, and individual and short-term counselling.
