The goal of the Johnston Heights Career Centre is to enable students to succeed in career exploration and to gain the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes appropriate for their career success—essential when planning for post-secondary education and work.
The Career Centre provides students with the resources to explore different career options, labour market information, resume support, work experience, and participate in various career field trips and career programs.
According to the BC Ministry of Education, Career Programs provide students with the opportunity to participate in career-specific studies and related community-based work experience. They are geared to meet a wide-range of learner needs from exploration of different careers, to preparation for further education and training in a career area, to providing very specific career pathways.
There are a variety of Career Programs at Johnston Heights Secondary School, such as Take Our Kids To Work, Career Cruising, Career Fairs such as Guest Speakers, WorkSafeBC, World of Choices, Mock Interviews, and the RCMP Academy.
We also offer one and two semester-long District Partnership Programs at various Career Technical Centres (CTC) throughout the Surrey School District. CTC programs include welding, steel fabrication, plumbing, outdoor power equipment, millwright, masonry, hairdressing, electrical and industrial electronics, drafting and CADD, carpentry, automotive parts and service, light warehousing, applied business technology, baking and pastry arts, CISCO networking, horticulture, and Woodlinks! Participating students can also gain a Secondary School Apprenticeship. Check it out at the Career Centre!
