Section II: Career Awareness
Most individuals experience two phases of career selection and preparation: (1) career awareness and exploration and (2) career development and application. For more information see: Section III Career Development. School-to-career activities are designed to help all students move through these two phases to learn about the work world and their place in it. The two phases provide a framework for understanding the sequence and scope of work based learning activities and when activities may be appropriate for students.
