Guidance Counselling (ACGC)

Academic and Career Guidance Content is mandatory content for all students in Quebec from Grade 5 to Secondary V. It explicitly addresses the QEP’s Broad Area of Learning Career Planning and Entrepreneurship by focusing on the themes “Self-Knowledge“, “Knowledge of the World of School” and “Knowledge of the World of Work” as a continuum over the course of seven school years.

Studies show that students who are exposed to content of this nature throughout their academic career have increased academic motivation, as reflected by an increase in engagement and perseverance. (ACGC Implementation Guide, MEQ, 2016)
