Levels of Achievement

Courses are organized into three levels of achievement: introductory, intermediate and advanced.

Levels of achievement are not indicators of grade levels. As students progress through the levels, they will be expected to meet higher standards and demonstrate an increased degree of competence, in both the general and specific outcomes.

Introductory level courses help students build daily living skills and form the basis for further learning. Introductory courses are for students who have no previous experience in the cluster.

Intermediate level courses build on the competencies developed at the introductory level. They provide a broader perspective, helping students recognize the wide range of related career opportunities available within the cluster.

Advanced level courses refine expertise and help prepare students for entry into the workplace or a related post-secondary program within the cluster.
