Self-Awareness and Personal Assessment
|Description:||Specially designed for women, the "Focus for Change" program provides an opportunity for women to participate in academic and self assessment and career planning. Based on the results, students will research careers that best suit their needs. Through information interviews, job shadows and labour market research students will develop realistic career goals and create an action plan to achieve those goals. Individually and in groups, students will set goals, learn how to problem solve, participate in job shadows, develop a learning plan to achieve their GED or enter other Conestoga programs or to gain employment. The program includes upgrading in communications, math and computer skills.
