Career & Technology

The Career & Technology Studies (CTS) program helps you discover your interests and abilities in practical and purposeful ways. The entire CTS program centers around five industry clusters and 28 occupational areas organized into one-credit courses. You may elect to pursue CTS courses at introductory, intermediate or advanced levels through the following pathways:

  • The Exploratory pathway allows you to take a wide range of CTS courses.
  • The Specialized skill pathway provides you with the knowledge, skills and attributes that will prepare you for specific community or job-site skills.
  • The Credentialed pathway provides you with post-secondary and/or business and industry credentials or articulation – for example: Child Care First Aid; Adobe Certified Expert.

We encourage you to expand your career goals and interests and connect CTS to other subjects.

RT @chandnim14: Yesterday, in my math class @MandelaUnited our teacher started off with showing us Gr. 12 students the same exact thing to prove that there is more than one way to solve. Of course, the gr 5s had more ways than we did! This shows that as we get older we don’t explore as much!!
