The major purpose of the pre-occupational track of Manitoba's ABE program is to enable students to get first-hand information about the world of work and to get information about themselves that will assist them in crystalizing an occupational choice. The program is designed to move students from an Awareness stage through an Exploration stage to a Preparation stage. Unit I consists of activities where students become aware of the implications of different occupational choices, where they explore a series of career clusters, and where they learn decision making skills and use them in expressing an occupational preference. Unit II, the exploration stage, enables the student to find out first-hand whether the role required by a worker in the occupation preferred is one that he/she would want to adopt. In Unit III, a student who has crystalized an occupational choice will be given assistance in implementing that choice by helping him find a job, obtaining on-job-training, or enrolling in the necessary training program. Those implementing this program are urged to experiment with the activities suggested and adapt them to meet the needs of their particular students. (Author/PC)
