Learning pathways

As technology and information continue to advance and career pathways grow more complex, the ability to respond to shifting circumstances in life and work is becoming increasingly important. Education has a key role in preparing students for life by providing them with the decision-making and career-management skills they will need for work and learning throughout their lives. Focus on the Future (PDF 1.9MB), published by the Government of Manitoba, Canada, defines career as the “combined total of a person’s lifelong experiences including his/her education, different jobs, family life, friendships, community activities, and leisure choices”. Evidence shows that incorporating quality career education into students’ learning improves engagement, achievement, and transition from school to work or further learning.

The ultimate goal of career education is for students to develop the understandings, skills, and attitudes that they need to make positive, informed career decisions throughout their lives. These learning outcomes are directly and explicitly linked to the key competencies, in particular managing self, participating and contributing, and relating to others. Developing and reviewing suitable education or pathway plans is an important way in which students can develop and apply these competencies in a lifelong context.
