What impact do teachers have on students’ career development? According to a recent survey by yconic, a youth-focused market research group, teachers play a large role in connecting students to work. In October 2014, 1,425 Canadian youth aged 15 to 29 were asked who played a role in them finding work and teachers ranked first place at 59 percent. This statistic emphasizes why it is so important that teachers give accurate career advice to students, which is why CAPS is partnering with Edmonton Public School Board (EPSB) to support the implementation of enhanced career programming in secondary schools. If students are receiving realistic and consistent education about career development, and opportunities to practice career management skills from high school through to university and beyond, the expectation is that they will have increased success in navigating their career paths.
