CESA #1 has created a virtual repository for students to explore local career pathways. Videos from
regional employers, business partners, and post-secondary institutions will be available for each of
the 16 career clusters.
We encourage schools to utilize this resource with students as part of their Academic and Career
Planning (ACP) program. Students can view as many videos as assigned to them and complete an
activity guide for further ACP planning and in-class discussion. After completing the registration
below, ACP Coordinators will receive access to the Career Symposium website which can be
shared with students.
This will be a year-long lesson that is graded quarterly. Students will follow the 5S Lean workforce model daily when working in the shop areas. 5S stands for Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain, and sometimes a 6th S stands for Safety. This model will help students with daily reminders on how we should maintain the shop and perform in the shop.
