This year we will be learning about career clusters. A career is a person’s work or job (also known as an occupation). It’s what they do to earn money and most people will work for about 30 years! This is why it’s important to select a career that you are good at and will enjoy doing for a very long time.

A career cluster is the way jobs are organized or grouped together. We group / organize jobs based on the skills needed and our interests.
