In Career and Technology Foundations (CTF), students plan, create, appraise, and communicate to explore interests and passions as they learn about various career possibilities and occupational areas through hands on projects. These projects can span 28 different occupational areas. Occupational areas are categorized by five clusters (Human Services, Business, Communication, Resources, and Technology. CTF provides a foundation for students to explore their passions to help them transition into Career and Technology Studies (CTS) in Grades 10 through 12.
Students develop communication, collaboration, critical thinking, time management and problem-solving skills through hands-on learning experiences. CTF supports the development of literacy, numeracy and competencies, which can be developed through student-focused learning opportunities that can include an interdisciplinary approach.
