Career and Technology Foundations (CTF)
Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) provides students in grades 5 to 9 the opportunity to explore their interests and career possibilities.
Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) helps students build their understanding of the world around them as they identify and apply career and life skills.
Students develop communication, collaboration, critical thinking, time management and problem solving skills through hands-on learning experiences. CTF supports the development of literacy, numeracy and competencies which can be developed through student-focused learning opportunities that can include an interdisciplinary approach.
CTF also provides a foundation for students to transition into Career and Technology Studies (CTS) in Grade 10 through 12.
Aurora Middle School provides students with numerous opportunities to develop their CTF skills.
Industrial Arts & Home Economics are offered to all students in grades 7 and 8.
Students in grade 7 and 8 also have the opportunity to apply to be in our Youth Achievement Program class, where the main goal is to offer career exposure opportunities that both engage the students in the learning process and connect the curriculum to a variety of careers that students may be interested in pursuing.
