One of the biggest obstacles that students face is the direction of their lives after they graduate from high school. Some see very little motivation to get high grades at school. As a result, they perform poorly at their studies, and it’s not because they have a hard time studying. More importantly, they will have decreased job opportunities in the future because their grades are not good enough to get them into college.
If you’re one of these students, what you need is help to determine your career goals and what you want to achieve in the future. This way, you know what steps you need to make on your way to your goals.
At Ontario, Canada, the Specialist High Skills Major program has provided an effective means to get students to figure out what to make out of their lives and set the bar for the future.
The Specialist High Skills Major, or SHSM for short, is a program for grade 11 to 12 student that exposes them to different career opportunities based off their hobbies and interests. From here, they can build and develop skills as taught to them by employees at the workplace. They will then have the information they need to make an informed decision for their future after graduating from high school.
SHSM has an Arts and Craft course for students with a passion for the arts. “The Admission Insider” Karen Kesteloot has held a talk to their students about her portfolio assessment program and how important it is for them to have a “winning” art portfolio to ensure that spot at their choice of college. Below is the video of her talk:
