Grade 10 Career Plans

GRADE 10 meetings and presentations focus on graduation requirements (earning credits, passing MCAS, passing shop competencies), goal setting, and occupational research. We ask students to think of what they can do this year to plan for their future success, and to realize the commitment it takes to reach those goals. We discuss learning how to make decisions and setting action plans. Goal setting is discussed at every career planning meeting and includes setting academic and technical goals such as: earning high grades to be competitive, researching academic and technical programs and colleges, taking required high stakes assessment exams, and/or getting help to get organized and improve study habits. We discuss setting personal and social goals such as the benefits of: playing a sport, or volunteering in community service activities, or joining clubs. Workplace readiness goals are stressed, such as: looking for part-time or summer employment, reviewing technical competencies to make sure students are on track, and creating initial resumes. Students are encouraged to explore career paths, to do further research to understand what skills, training and education they need to be successful in a career, and are asked to identify their interests, and think about what would give them job satisfaction.

We hope that the following websites will help guide your discussion with your student on setting goals by understanding the skills and education needed to be successful: northeastmetrotech.com; collegeboard.com; kudernavigator.com.
