Étant conseillers scolaires, nous croyons que l’opportunité d’atteindre la santé mentale et émotionelle est au coeur de l’éducation. La profession de conseiller scolaire supporte le développement personnel, social, académique et de carrière des étudiants afin de leur fournir l’opportunité d’achever leur plein potentiel. C’est avec cette vision à l’égard de nos étudiants que nous nous efforçons de bâtir une identité nationale au sein de notre profession.
La section des conseillers scolaires a été fondée en 2000. La section communique avec ses membres par des bulletins d’information semestriels et tiens leurs assemblées générales annuelles conjointement avec le congrès national de l’ACCP.
En 2003, un logo a été créé pour la section. Ce logo, qui est basé sur la philosophie définie dans leur constitution, s’inspire de la croyance qu’ensemble, nous pouvons prendre notre envol, qu’il y a de la solidarité dans notre diversité et que, en tant que membre interactif de l’ACCP, nous avons une présence et une voix plus fortes au niveau national.
Les objectifs de la section sont de:
- Fournir aux conseillers scolaires l’occasion de se rencontrer pour s’entretenir de questions cruciales ou névralgiques dans le domaine de l’orientation scolaire.
- Offrir un lieu d’échange, de partage d’information et de perfectionnement professionnel (axé sur les compétences et sur les connaissances).
- Servir d’instrument de représentation auprès des facultés et des départements universitaires, des gouvernements et des organismes pertinents en vue d’aider les responsables de programmes d’orientation scolaire à atteindre leur principal objectif, lequel est de former des conseillers et des conseillères scolaires ayant la compétence professionnelle requise.
- Fournir aux conseillers scolaires un moyen qui leur permette de s’aider les uns les autres à se perfectionner et à obtenir du soutien pour la recherche aux niveaux provincial et fédéral grâce à une collaboration plus étroite.
- Servir de lien direct avec l’Association nationale, ce qui permet d’afficher des buts et des objectifs communs.
