Acts as the electronic portfolio of the IPP.
This data collection warehouse stores the
evidence of our students’ career/life exploration
based on the four guiding inquiry questions.
Students complete assessments to determine a
career or career sector match based on interest
and skill.
Students are able to explore careers and sectors
that interest them and research post-secondary
education or training program requirements.
Research colleges, apprenticeship or universities
and their specific programs.
Develop a resume for job searches.
The IPP could be used to
generate other
