WELCOME to the CEC DISCOVER Partnership Program!
Through our programs and classroom presentations, students are introduced to the changing dynamics of the current workforce focusing on technical skills as the new currency. Students are taught how to assess their skills and interests; explore career choices; research post-secondary education and training; and make informed decisions when choosing their career path and creating a career plan.
What our students are saying…
“I was surprised to learn the amount of available jobs for my career choice.”
“It was very useful to learn the costs of schooling for my career.”
“I was surprised to learn that colleges are charging a lot of money when you can go to ones cheaper for same classes.”
“It was useful to learn what jobs are in our area and which ones are in high demand.“
“I was surprised to learn the different needs in our community related to jobs.”
