CMEC Reference Framework for Successful Student Transitions

At its 106th meeting, CMEC approved the CMEC Reference Framework for Successful Student Transitions and two accompanying tools: a self-assessment tool and action plan template. The Reference Framework reflects shared perspectives on transitions and signals the importance of the issue for CMEC. Each jurisdiction may use the elements that best suit its specific objectives and context. The draft assessment tool and action plan template are resources that can be used by provinces and territories, as well as the many stakeholders engaged in work to improve transitions, to gauge the development of initiatives and set out future plans within the context of the Reference Framework.
