Career Development

Time is ticking away. Have you thought about what you would like to do after high school?  

 
February's  Career Cluster Showcase
                                               Architecture and Construction

 

This Career Cluster prepares learners for careers in designing, planning, managing, building and maintaining the building environment. People employed in this cluster work on new structures, restorations, additions, alterations and repairs.

Architecture and construction comprise one of the largest industries in the United States. Based on the latest statistics, this career cluster has 13.8 million jobs. In the next few years, many new jobs will be added and many employment opportunities will result from the need to replace experienced workers who leave jobs.

 

Announcement

It's okay not to know what you want to be when you grow up...
as long as you have the TOOLS to figure it out!

 

As students at Belton-Honea Path School start to explore possible career choices the Career Development webpage will provide a wide range of information. The site is designed to assist students and parents as the student begins to plan for high school, post-secondary education and/or training, and the workforce.
While the middle school student may be too young to truly commit to a career choice, he/she is not too young to learn that the understanding of one's self is crucial in choosing a career that will be satisfying and rewarding. 
With that in mind, South Carolina is implementing a program entitled "Personal Pathways to Success." The purpose of this program is to assist students as they develop goals for their future and for specific careers. 
Students explore many careers opportunities from kindergarten through eighth grade. In the eighth grade each student uses this exploration, along with interest and ability assessments to select a career cluster of study for high school. This planning is completed with an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) created and signed by the student, parent, and a counselor. 
As the Career Development Facilitator at B-HP, I will work with students, teachers, and parents throughout the year as we take a walk along the Pathway to Success.

    Scholarship Search is an easy way for high school seniors, current undergraduates, and graduate students in the United States to find money for their education. Designed to ease the scholarship search process, Scholly’s adaptive matching engine delivers a smarter, targeted list of scholarships for each student. Scholly remedies the current outdated process which requires that each student fill out long, tiresome forms only to receive irrelevant, useless results. Scholly's database consists of a list of scholarships curated by the Million Dollar Scholar himself. We don’t waste student’s time with random scholarships they don't qualify for nor do we populate our database with non-scholarship items like loans, internships, and advertisements. We update deadlines as soon as they are available and scholarships that no longer exist will be removed from our database. Scholly is the first step in making the scholarship search process as simple as possible.
