Career & Technology Foundations

Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) helps students build their understanding of the world around them as they identify and apply career and life skills.

Since fall 2016, the Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) program of studies has been approved for provincial implementation as an optional program for students Grades 5-9.

Students develop communication, collaboration, critical thinking, time management and problem solving skills through hands-on learning experiences. CTF supports the development of literacy, numeracy and competencies, which can be developed through student-focused learning opportunities that can include an interdisciplinary approach.

CTF also provides a foundation for students to transition into Career and Technology Studies (CTS) in Grades 10 through 12.
