G​uidance​ and Career Education plays a central role by preparing students for a complex and changing world. The Guidance  program has a specific focus on learner, interpersonal, and career development with the following goals:

  • teach career awareness early and throughout students' education;
  • ensure that students have the skills they need to set and achieve their learning goals now and in the future;
  • teach students the skills to make transitions throughout their lives, to work and/or further education and training;
  • prepare students to live in an increasingly diverse society by helping them develop the ability to interact positively and work effectively in a range of settings.​​
