  Student Intentions and Perceptions Study 2019

In March 2019, in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD), a study was initiated involving students in grades 6-12 across the province of Nova Scotia. The Student Intentions and Perceptions survey was launched for voluntary/non-mandatory participation across English, French, and MK schools, and received 4,042 responses – a nearly 15% response rate.


Understanding the perceptions of marine-related and trades/technology careers among today’s youth and understanding their intentions and influences will provide useful insights to inform recommendations for the design of future awareness/exposure building initiatives and career development programs to help us shift the dial on this workforce challenge.
