The Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Ministry of Education have developed a guide for parents of teens who are planning their future in the labour market.
The WorkBC Parents’ Guide is being shipped out to WorkBC Employment Services Centre’s (ESCs) this week. It includes information on programs, strategies, services, labour market trends, and a range of resources to help parents support their child’s career planning.
The guide has been updated with new labour market information to support youth in exploring career and educational pathways. The guide is full of practical ideas and resources for investigating careers and making decisions and covers a range of vital topics including:
- how you can help teens to find a direction and a passion
- the labour market today and tomorrow
- allies who can help you
- essential skills and learning paths
- how to finance post-secondary education and training
The guide, funded by the Ministries of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training (JTST) and Education (EDUC), is a result of the collaboration of several ministries including JTST, EDUC, Advanced Education and Social Development and Social Innovation. Approximately 50,000 copies of the guide have been distributed to all WorkBC ESCs, First Nations training and employment centres, BC’s public, independent, and First Nations secondary schools, and public libraries.
