About the blueprint:
What is the Blueprint used for?

The Blueprint has a number of applications. It is primarily used to design and review career development programs and activities.

Because career development is a unique, fluid, creative and individual process, it is important to remember that the Blueprint is intended to be used in flexible ways.  Different people require different types of assistance at different times in their lives.

You can use the Blueprint to:

  • Explain the benefits and applications of the Blueprint to key stakeholders
  • Map existing school-wide career development activities to determine which Blueprint competencies it helps to develop
  • Design a comprehensive career development program
  • Determine individual student competencies and develop plans to address gaps
  • Review a career development resource to determine the career competencies it targets  
  • Evaluate an existing career development course or curriculum
  • Create a short career development course, and
  • Incorporate employability skills into learning programs.

You will find step-by-step guidance on using the Blueprint for these purposes in the toolkit.
