The Instructional Guide for Career Education Kit is designed to assist special education students in acquiring career information and the skills for occupational planning. Since career education is a life-long process, instructional activities begin at the primary level and extend through the secondary grades.
Early activities focus on promoting awareness while older students begin to explore options, learn about personal characteristics and prepare to enter the workplace. The six program goals mirror the eight competency areas highlighted in the CERES curriculum.
Economic Self-SufficiencyLearn about correct usage and understanding of money.
Self-AwarenessAbility to relate to the world in which they live and to cope adequately.
Academic AbilitiesDevelop skills and abilities required for participation in career activities.
