Careers and Transitions for Students

District #79 Careers and Transitions provide locally developed educational programs that prepare students for entry into the workplace and further education and training in a specific career pathway. They enhance the goal of career development, which is one of the three pillars of education in the Kindergarten to Grade 12 education system. Career Education Counselors at each of our Secondary Schools and at the District level work with students in their decision making process as they begin to make post secondary and career goal decisions. The Cowichan Valley School District has become a leader in British Columbia in creating expanded opportunities for our students as they begin a transition to career.
