WHAT IS A GRADUATION TRANSITION PLAN?
The Ministry of Education requires all BC students to complete a graduation transition plan by meeting the requirements listed below. This is YOUR plan for the future. This will help you figure out what you are going to do after high school and create a plan in order to achieve your future goals. It is all about the transition to the "real world". You may already have a clear idea of what you want to do, or you might be completely lost. Either way, this plan will help you get on the right track. The core goals of this course are to help you become successful by setting personalized, attainable goals, understanding financial planning for success, and following personalized timelines for future goals while being healthy in the process.
Core Values of Graduation Transitions
The core values of Graduation Transitions are built on respect and professionalism, while students are transitioning from the role of a student to the role of an adult. Please note that the content of interviews and assignments needs to be one that showcases this growing understanding of respect and professionalism, and thus, if an assignment or an interview is conducted that violates these values, the student's assignment or interview will not be considered complete for this graduation requirement.
