Pathways is a part of the Ministry of Education’s Student Success Initiative, which is transforming our system. The goal of Pathways is to prepare students for the future. It is important for students to find success and joy in their learning throughout high school and beyond. Pathways assists students in planning and pursuing a post-secondary destination that relates to their interests, skills and abilities.
Pathways planning is an integral part of the Guidance and Career Education program in our schools, which plays a central role in helping students understand, develop and apply skills related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships, educational and career planning and goal setting.
Pathways initiatives provide a wide range of course types, programs and learning opportunities to prepare students for success in secondary school and beyond. Secondary schools offer a variety of course types to meet the needs of all learners.
