Successful at work


Teachers and parents agree students develop attitudes and behaviours for success at work

Percentage of teachers and parents who agree that students are taught attitudes and behaviours that will make them successful at work when they finish school (Source: Accountability Pillar, May 2015).

Alberta Education surveys teachers and parents to determine how satisfied they are with the attitudes and behaviours students develop at school that will support success in the world of work.

Teacher and parent perceptions are one of several indicators that demonstrate a student has the attitudes and behaviours that will contribute to success in the world of work.

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.
