Take our Kids to Work day

Attention all Government of Nunavut employees: Take Our Kids to Work day will take place on Wednesday, November 1, 2017! This will be an exciting experience for yourself and for your child.

Students are invited to spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer experiencing and learning about the world of work.

The Department of Education supports this program and hopes that through participation Nunavut school students will:

  • understand the importance of staying in school
  • start exploring career options in a practical way
  • become aware of the Career and Program Planning process (CPP) achieved through mandatory Aulajaaqtut classes.
  • gain a better understanding of just how many career choices are open to them

Health and safety education is an important element of this program. Nunavut schools will distribute this information for students, parents and employers.

Some Nunavut schools will observe this activity on an alternate date; please contact your child’s school regarding the date in your community.

For more information please contact info.edu@gov.nu.ca or 867-975-5680.
