Career and Technology Studies (CTS)
Career and Technology Studies (CTS) pathways build on the Career & Technology Foundations (CTF) inquiry-based, hands-on studies for Grades 5 to 9. CTS at Lord Beaverbrook involves four main clusters composed of occupational areas with industry commonalities.
The 4 CTS Clusters
Business, Administration, Finance & Information Technology (BIT)
Health, Recreation & Human Services (HRH)
Media, Design & Communication Arts (MDC)
Trades, Manufacturing & Transportation (TMT)
In all CTS courses, students must complete all 5 credits in order to move to the next course level (INTRODUCTORY to INTERMEDIATE to ADVANCED). An exception may be made for students with 4 out of 5 credits in consultation with the Learning Leader and at the discretion of the receiving teacher as well as the preceding course teacher.
