Request for Proposals on Career Development in Children: Identifying Critical Success Conditions and Strategies
CERIC is issuing this Request for Proposal (RFP) to invite interested researchers (or researcher teams) to submit a detailed proposal. Comprehensive submissions will enable CERIC to select the party that is best suited to complete the project according to the specified criteria noted in the RFP.
The purpose of this national initiative is to validate the fine work teachers are doing to introduce, nurture and develop the foundational skills that help their students, in grades 4 – 6, to thrive. In particular, CERIC seeks to showcase this work to highlight what strategies and interventions are currently employed by educators. Such strategies and interventions require closer examination of the potential impact on children’s future career development and potential to thrive. CERIC’s interest in this project is three-fold:
To understand the landscape of what is happening in elementary education across Canada related to introducing/building career related foundational skills
To use a mixed methods approach to explore the impact of these conditions and strategies on career development foundational skills
To develop a teacher’s aid toolkit that validates teacher practice
Request for Proposals Released: October 2, 2019 Intent to Submit: October 28, 2019 Proposal Deadline: November 21, 2019 Award of Contract: February 11, 2020 Project Initiation: March 10, 2020

National Initiative: Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work
We invite you to be part of an exciting initiative being undertaken by the Canadian Career Development Foundation (CCDF), in partnership with the Canadian Council for Career Development (3CD). This project began on Sept. 10, 2019 and will finish in September 2021, giving our field an exceptional window of opportunity to tale some big strides forward.
This initiative, “Supporting Canadians to Navigate Learning and Work” is a comprehensive project, involving career development professionals (CDPs), their employers, training providers, and provincial professional associations.
