Career Navigation

Career Navigation will be available to all ECEs currently working in child care or pre-primary looking to participate in one of our Pathways to Education opportunities.
Career assistance will be provided virtually and will support career decision making for ECE’s interested in furthering their studies. This will help ECEs develop a career path, establish learning plans, support them in the application process, and be available to students while they study.

Do I have to participate in this process?

Participation is optional but strongly encouraged.

How can I access Career Navigation?

Nova Scotia will be announcing the details of the career navigation services by mid-August. We will send a memo to all employers with details, post information on our website and share details through the Association of Early Childhood Educators of Nova Scotia.

Is there is a cost for Career Navigation?

No there is no cost.

Is this available to everyone or just students thinking about a career in ECE?

At this time participation is open to those working in child care, family home care, the Pre-primary Program or registered in a diploma or degree related to early childhood education. We hope to expand the program in the future.

Who can benefit from Career Navigation?

All ECEs working in child care and pre-primary can benefit over the next few years from this free service which will help them identify their education and career goals.

Career Navigation will be available to all ECEs currently working in child care or pre-primary looking to participate in one of our Pathways to Education opportunities.
