Career Development Portfolio. Seattle Public Schools.
Seattle Public Schools, WA.
Designed for use in the BRIDGE program of Seattle Public Schools, this career development portfolio is a 4-page blank form designed to encourage students to take responsibility for their decisions and development to enhance career opportunities and options. It is a tool to help students connect their learning to their success in the workplace. The career development portfolio is a component of a comprehensive guidance program that provides sequential career development activities for students in grades 9-12. Each part of the portfolio illustrates an important facet of career development, leading students through the process of analyzing and synthesizing information that will assist with more purposeful and directed career decisions. The first section provides a place to record student and school information, describes the purpose of the portfolio, and gives a checklist of items that may be included in the folder. The second section provides a place for students to indicate identified career areas of interest and a checklist of recommended activities at each grade level that will assist students in their career development process. This checklist has been cross referenced with Seattle Public Schools' career guidance goals and objectives. The third section provides space for students to record self-assessment information. The last section is designed for high school course planning; it includes space for 9th- to 12th-grade courses, graduation requirements checklist, college entrance requirements, high school options, and high school plan.
