About the course

The CareerFoward program takes on the challenge of assisting young people as they prepare for careers in the global market that is impacting their lives now and in the future.

Technology, along with many other factors, has leveled job prospects for people all over the world. Career opportunities are more diverse than they used to be, and students today need to be introduced to the growing global competition that they will face. Most important, they need motivation to plan and see the education that is so crucial for their futures.

This website is designed to provide a framework for students and teachers to use as they explore possibilities and learn how to prepare for the future.

The program contains about 20 hour-long online sessions using personal reflection and activities and gives each student an independent exploration of the possibilities for their future that will allow them to move on and create an Educational Development Plan (EDP).

Each of the links on this page provide context and guidance as to how most effectively to use the CareerForward program. Start with the Overview and go through each module so that you can understand how to make the most out of the program.
