Career Development


The new realities of the contemporary workplace and the contemporary worker have changed our perception and use of the concept of career. Career development is now viewed as complex and multidimensional, involving growing through life and work - an interweaving of learning, experiencing, living, working, changing, and identifying and discovering pathways. Thus career development can be seen as the creation of an individual's life/work designs.

Credit for Employment Guidelines

Manitoba Education and Training is pleased to release this online, unedited DRAFT version of the Credit for Employment Guidelines which may be implemented by schools on a voluntary basis.

Credit for Employment (CFE) will allow students to earn high school credit for paid work experience, to encourage and recognize the skills development and experience gained through employment. These Credit for Employment Guidelines can be used by educators, administrators, parents and students to support the planning, monitoring, evaluating, reporting of student experiences related to the Credit for Employment.

For further information on this new option, and to provide your feedback on these guidelines, please contact Ruth Stargardter.
