The purpose of this resource section is to provide educators – STEM teachers, subject teachers, and Career teachers – with the tools to help them take students from their initial thinking about careers (i.e., what subjects they like, the type of post-secondary education they are interested in, the general career sectors they may have an interest in, etc.) to a deeper understanding of the variety of careers available and how previous training, on-the-job education opportunities, and personal interests, and a lifelong-learning philosophy, both advance and expand one’s career prospects.
