Have you given serious thought to what you want to do after high school? Do you want to learn more about the careers you are interested in? Students have the opportunity to participate in “Career Spotlights” and “Career Connections.”
We, at PVSD, work closely with the Regina District Industry Education Council. They connect high school students with industry. The RDIEC organizes “Career Spotlights” which provide an opportunity for interested Grade 10-12’s to obtain information about a specific career area. The presenters indicate to the students what they do in their jobs, why they got involved in their profession and what they perceive to be the challenges and rewards of their particular occupation.
The students are then involved in an activity which demonstrates some aspect of the presenters’ work world and/or a tour of the facility. For more information about Career Spotlights, please visit www.RDIEC.ca
For any Grade 10-12 students interested in learning more about careers in the following areas:
