Education and Career/Life Planning
Your Individual Pathway Plan allows you to focus on 4 main questions to assist you in Planning your Pathway.
Individual Pathways Plan
The Individual Pathways Plan is a component of Creating Pathways to Success, the new Education and Career/Life Planning Program for all Ontario students (grades K-12). All students in grades 7-12 will develop an Individual Pathway Plan (IPP) that they will review and revise at least twice each year. It is very much a living document and will change in real time as students engage in the four question inquiry framework.
The ongoing development of the IPP provides students with a valuable archive of their learning and with resources that can assist them with their planning. It helps students identify their interests and strengths; explore opportunities; make meaningful decisions; and set goals for the future. Parents and teachers are an important part of this student-led process.
As students move through school and life, they will make many choices about their education and career/life plans. Students will establish and maintain their Individual Pathways Plan (IPP), documenting what they continue to learn about themselves; the opportunities available to them; their goals; and how they plan to achieve them. Each school will have a process in place to support students in completing the IPP expectations appropriate to their grade level.
