Future grads plan for in-demand careers

Updated grad planner will help point students toward in-demand jobs.

High-school students throughout B.C. can get a jump start on their career plans for the jobs of tomorrow with last week’s release of the 2015-16 Grad Planner.

This year’s updated edition helps point students toward jobs that will be in demand in B.C. by the time they graduate. Carpenters, accountants and early childhood educators top the list of jobs in need by 2022. The 2015-16 Grad Planner can be found on the Ministry of Education website.

Launched in 2004, this easy-to-use planner also provides students with guidance and tools to help choose courses, credits and electives to successfully graduate high-school.

Key information offered in the guide:

* A list of in demand jobs from 2012-22.

* Required courses and elective credits needed for successful graduation and acceptance into post-secondary and apprentice programs.

* Exams, awards and scholarships available to students.

* Links to websites with information to help with distance education, earning external credits, and preparing for post-secondary and career programs.
