Career Kiosks: (available in Junior & Senior High Schools)
Career Kiosks can help students with career exploration using futureseekers.ca, a career planning website designed specifically to engage Nova Scotia students, and provide them with direct access to career planning tools licensed for use in Nova Scotia schools.
This site includes a complete description of each of the 66 designated trades (including the 12 compulsory certified trades) in Nova Scotia, videos about apprenticeship and careers in the trades, contact information for the Training Officers in Nova Scotia, as well as all of the details on how to get started as an apprentice.
myBlueprint is a digitial portfolio, a career exploration tool and career and life planning resource. Students are given access to five self assessments that help guide their planning. They can also track their learning and acheivement, explore careers and post-secondary options, develop resumes and cover letters, do live job searches, record and share their learning and practice budgeting and goal setting. Students in grades 4-12 have access to this site via a student created user name and password.
