Start to do your career planning from Grade 7
Hosted by the Education Foundation of CPAC and sponsored by HSBC Bank Canada, CPAC Education Day is the largest education related event in GTA’s Chinese Community. The main purpose of this annual event is to provide newcomer families with information on the Canadian education system and related services, helping students and parents succeed in their new life in Canada. Since its inception 6 years ago, this event has provided over 10,000 student and parents with practical information about education in this country.
The 7th CPAC Education Day will be held on October 25th, 2014 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel (600 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill ON L4B 1B2). About forty schools and education related service providers are expected to attend this year’s event to let you have a face-to-face communication chance to the school representatives. A keynote presentation shared by a Harvard student plus eight breakout session workshops and a full day drop-in student forum hosted by post-secondary student’s associations are all tailored to the needs of parents and students. Catering to the increasing interest in adult education, this year’s Education Day will also provide related information and workshop to mature students seeking a second career or look to upgrading their skills to reach their goals.
How to do the career plan? Come join us at this workshop on 2014 CPAC Education Day:
How Teens Can Build Their Career Pathway to Prosperity
This workshop will teach students and parents how to begin planning the student`s career from grade 7 all the way to high school and will include topics such as high school course selection, important timelines for post-secondary school, and managing the costs of post-secondary programs. The workshop will also include advice from futurists on rapidly changing job opportunities to match the 21st century skills that are in demand – creative problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, personal development, global citizenship and digital competency.
