Career-Life Connections 12A


Christa Cowie


CLE 10 and grade 11 or 12 standing


This newly developed course meets the learning standards for the new BC Curriculum course called Career-Life Connections.

Career-Life Connections 12 A (CLC A) is a 2 credit course which provides students with the knowledge and tools to begin crafting their life today and for the years ahead. This course helps students to explore a range of life pathways, focus on their own health and wellness, and understand the importance of mentors and networking. There will also be a focus on transition planning and preparing for their Capstone project.

Note: Students will also be required to complete Career-Life Connections 12 B (CLC B). This is another 2 credit course which will focus on the Capstone project. Students will be required to complete CLC B (Capstone) at their neighbourhood school. Only full-time SIDES students will complete their capstone with us. If you are a full-time SIDES student please contact a counsellor to be enrolled. You may take both courses simultaneously.

Both CLC A and CLC B are mandatory requirements for graduation.

CLC A is organized into the following three units:

  • Unit 1: Personal Career-Life Development
  • Unit 2: Connections with Community
  • Unit 3: Transition Planning






This course is self-paced and students can begin throughout the year. It is ideal for students who wish to take responsibility for establishing their own timelines and require a flexible course that they can accommodate into their lives.

Students are expected to complete the course within a one-year period. We encourage students to complete a schedule for themselves using the built in scheduler at the beginning of the course. This will give students the big picture view of their commitment and progress towards completion.
