From Judy A., Librarian – Reference & Collection Management

As increasing numbers of young people worldwide struggle to establish a career path, the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada published a document this month entitled CMEC Reference Framework for Successful Student Transitions designed “to inform, encourage, and support jurisdictions as they respond to the changing nature of student transitions.”  This document outlines the issues around student transitions in Canada and provides the following benchmarks “intended to support and promote good practice”:

  • Stable and student-centred career programming is provided
  • Career-management skills (CMS) are actively developed
  • Career and labour-market Information is accessible, and its effective use is supported
  • Policy and programming recognize, and are tailored to, the diverse and specific needs of students
  • Learning is explicitly linked to labour-market applications
  • All students participate in work-integrated learning opportunities
  • Students learn about all PSE pathways
  • Youth have access to career and transition services
  • Implementation, impact, and quality assurance are underpinned by adequate training of providers
  • Career education and service provision are assessed
  • Continuous improvement is guided by evidence and return on investment

The Framework is also accompanied by a Student Transition Benchmark Self-Assessment Tool and a Student Transition Action Plan Template. Have a look!
