What's New in ACGC
The ACGCs have been fully implemented across the province at all levels since 2021-22.
Learning Situations (LS) are now available for almost all of the ACGCs. Most recently, Entering the workforce...a new reality, Secondary Cycle Two (Personal perceptions and the reality of the world of work) was posted on the LEARN site under Teaching and Learning Tools.
For those unfamiliar with the ACGC, a video in English is now available on the MEQ YouTube page, entitled, Introduction to Academic and Career Guidance Content (ACGC).
Take advantage of the many resources in English now available on the Ministry’s Vibe platform and on the LEARN site (ACGC Elementary, Secondary Cycle One, Secondary Cycle Two).
The “Continuum with Links" is a new tool to help you quickly access all content items and their corresponding expected student learning outcomes, as well as LSs, summary sheets and record-keeping tools.
