Postsecondary Study Group
Is Your teen struggling
to figure out post-high school life?
If it seems like your teen is finding it a lot harder to navigate education and career decisions than you did, you’re not imagining it.
There are more than 20,000 job titles in the
National Occupation Classification in Canada.
Universities and colleges have started to look almost identical when it comes to the programs they offer and the credentials they grant.
In our post-COVID world, work can be done by anyone,
anywhere in the world and at anytime of the day.
The traditional 9-to-5 seems
like it’s going the way of the dodo bird.
It really is a lot to navigate.
In the Midst of All Their options,
where are your teens getting good career guidance?
From the guidance counsellor who has 400 other kids on their roster?
From the careers course they took in grade 10,
where they only learned how to make a barely-passable resume?
From the social media influencer who plays video games all day and sells merch?
There is definitely a better way.
It’s called Postsecondary Study Group.
Postsecondary Study Group is a one-of-a-kind career and education coaching program specifically designed for students in Grades 11 and 12 and their families and cheerleaders.
1. Exclusive online content available 24/7 so you can work through it at your own pace,
and so that anyone in your household can access it.
I’ve done this program as a live group coaching program, and as much as I love the energy of group coaching,
families struggled to fit weekly sessions and regular career exploration activities into their schedules.
I have also coached hundreds of students and youth on an individual basis.
Not only can this be a financial struggle for a lot of families, but there is an important element of confidentiality
in a one-on-one professional coaching environment. There was only so much I could reveal to
parents and guardians, with their kids’ explicit permission.
The content is built from my 16+ years of experience in career education with youth, parents and educators
and more than seven years directly career coaching teens and 20-somethings,
including students, dropouts and new grads.
2. One-on-one coaching sessions to complement your independent work.
That individualized, confidential conversation is still really important to this process.
Career development isn’t a one-size-fits-all hockey jersey. Everyone has questions
they’re embarrassed to ask about, or situations they’re not sure how to broach with their family and friends.
These sessions are held with a trained career professional who specializes in youth career development.
The best part is, parents/guardians get individual sessions, and teens get separate ones.
3. Weekly office hours in case you get stuck, or if you just you want some
accountability on your career exploration exercises.
Some people use office hours to pop in and ask a quick question, while others use them almost like
an online coworking session. Whatever your bag, these can be a great way to get clarification fast
and to connect with others in the program.
4. Weekly check-ins and email support
I don’t know about you, but I lost track of all the Facebook groups and Slack channels I’m on ages ago.
It’s too much to keep track, and don’t you have enough going on already?
In that spirit, we come to you!
We send weekly check-ins to let you know what’s coming up in the next week
and if you have a burning question that can’t wait, all you have to do is hit “reply.”
This Isn't Going To Be Just Like Grade 10 Careers, Is It?
Oh yikes, I hope not.
Week 1: Program Foundations and Introduction to Career Planning
Is it really just about finding the thing that you love to do?
What does a meaningful career even look like?
Week 2: Finding Quality Career Information
Learn sources of quality market information,
how to use social media as a research tool and the simplest, most
direct way to get career information.
Week 3: Postsecondary Pathways
Get detailed info on the major pathway options after high school:
university, community college and apprenticeship.
AND, find out how people mix and match different pathways to their competitive advantage.
Week 4: Postsecondary Success
As many as 30% of students withdraw from postsecondary studies, wasting time, money and energy.
Learn how not to be one of them, starting months before you even get there.
Week 5: Moving from School to Work
The transition from student to worker is a lot trickier than people think.
So we take some time to look at how to build your resume without burning out as you get closer to
landing your first grown-up job.
Week 6: Long-term Career Mode
Defining long-term career success
and figuring out how to handle the random challenges life can throw into your career.
Let's talk about what a "typical" career path looks like:
it's time to drop the old attitudes about careers
Having your life planned out by the end of high school stopped being an option several generations ago.
Between technology, the economy and demographic changes, today's teens have
many more career and education options available to them.
And in today's world, having a university degree doesn't even guarantee making a salary above the poverty line.
Let's give our kids the best information available, and the courage and confidence to make
career and education decisions that fit them.
Help them find as many ways as possible to bring out their gifts and skills and allow them to
have a positive impact on the world.
