  • Career Related Learning Experiences 
    Experts generally divide Career Related Learning into three categories and PPS has embraced these designations as we map the vision for College and Career Readiness:

    Career Awareness. These activities are designed to help students develop basic awareness careers by interacting with professionals. These activities help students understand the education and skill requirements for success in various fields. Examples of these activities include career fairs and classroom visits by working professionals.

    Career Exploration. These activities provide students with more in-depth opportunities to learn about careers in specific fields. Students interact with professionals in the work environment. Examples of career exploration activities include job shadows, informational interviews, mock interviews, and company tours.

    Career Preparation These activities provide students with opportunities to gain actual work experience that support the development of key job skills. Examples of career preparation activities include internships, apprenticeships, and paid summer employment.
