Areas Of Careers, Careers And Related Subjects For Students In Senior Secondary Schools

 

The subjects that are being taught in the senior secondary school level are subjects that enlighten the students on the kind of work that is required in careers that the subjects implicate or is related to. It builds the students with the attitudes and skills that will be required in any career of their choice. For students to know the subjects to select and combine for studies and exams in school, they'll have to know the career they would like to go into, and the area of studies which the careers fall under.

Career choice is a good step to take after the senior secondary school one (sss1)   where subjects in all areas of study are taught. The core (compulsory subjects e.g Maths and English) and elective subjects(career related subjects e.g Biology and Government) are taught to students to build their knowledge for personal usage and enlightenment on careers and the relationship the taught subjects have with it. This makes it easier for students who are in the senior secondary school three(3) to be sure of courses to pursue in the university or or other tertiary school institutions.
