Welcome to the Career Connectors Wiki!

This wikispace, in conjunction with our Career Connectors Blog, is intended as the beginnings of an interactive Career Practitioner Resource for Career Development Teachers within the Sun West School Division. Through the sharing of resources, ideas, articles, and tools, we will collaborate as professionals supporting those new to the area of Career Development, those with experience, and those somewhere in between. It is hoped that through a combination of our wiki, blog, and PD sessions, we develop a culture of sharing and collaboration which will help us overcome challenges, strengthen our current support system, and work together to help our students develop solid life/career competencies.

This is a process of "Learning Together..."

"Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do." ~ Benjamin Spock

We will embrace this statement as we progress with this collaborative process as we are all professionals and have something of value to share!

Primary Purpose:
Our purpose is to create an interactive career practitioner resource to support teachers new to the area of Career Development, to increase learnings of current career development teachers, to draw on experience from seasoned career development teachers, and to create a forum for ongoing communication and professional dialogue.

The focus will consider the need to achieve the following outcomes:
  • develop a common language for career development
  • establish, develop, and ensure consistent career development practices
  • improve knowledge of Blueprint for Life/Work Designs and other competency frameworks
  • improve access to key resources in support of career development
  • support teachers and learners with development of 21st Century Competencies
  • further develop our career development teacher network

As this develops, it is our hope this interactive resource will expand to include career development practitioners within the province (and possibly outside of the province) rather than only those within our own division.

The journey awaits!

(To begin, please use the navigation bar on the left side of the screen to begin your investigations into ideas and information pertinent to us as Career Development Teachers within our roles as Career Practitioners/Counsellors. In some sections you will find invitations to engage in "Investigations", followed by an exploration of various ideas/readings, and the encouragement to follow-up with thoughtful "Reflections".).

Thanks to all of you for your shared thoughts thus far, here's to continued collaboration.


Dedicated effort has gone into identifying sources of information throughout this wiki. In the event of any question or concern as to the use of any ideas/material, etc., please contact us and we will make necessary corrections.

Yours in Education,

Vanessa Lewis
Sun West School Division - Career Development Consultant on behalf of CD Team.
