Alberta Education surveys students to determine how satisfied they are with the help they get at school to plan for a career.

Student perception is one of several indicators that demonstrates students have access to the support they need in planning for a career.  

Priority 1

Student Growth and Success

Foster growth and success for every student by supporting their journey from early learning through high school completion and beyond.

Goal Three

Success beyond schooling

Outcome: More students complete high school and are connected to career pathways that support their transition to post-secondary studies or the world of work.

Why is it important?

More than ever, young people are facing increasingly complex decisions as they build their awareness, understanding and commitment to potential life pathways.

The District has a role to play in providing opportunities for students to develop the foundational knowledge, competencies and attitudes to successfully participate in post-secondary and the world of work. High school completion is essential to supporting this outcome.

Survey results were impacted by changes in the number of students responding to the survey through the introduction of the Tell THEM From ME survey tool in 2014.
