Getting involved in organized activities on campus helps foster and hone employable skills. Co-Curricular Credit Record programming at Selkirk College encourages students to have a well-rounded post-secondary experience where learning extends beyond the classroom.
CCR programming provides students with diverse opportunities to engage in non-academic activities identified as fostering lifelong learning through personal growth and development, developing employability skills and enhancing transferable skills beyond what is recognized on the student’s academic transcript.
Official Documentation: the CCR Record
A Co-Curricular Record (CCR) program provides an official document validating a student’s achievement and involvement in various activities recognized by Selkirk College.
Students and alumni can use their CCR official document to showcase their skill development by including it as supporting documentation in portfolios and application packages for employment, further post-secondary/graduate school, or scholarships and bursaries.
Employers currently seek job candidates who are:
Well-rounded candidates – have the skills, experience, knowledge and interpersonal skills to be successful
Able to provide concrete examples of how they demonstrated the skills and knowledge listed on their resume
Have demonstrated leadership skills
Have the ability to work with others as well as independently
Involved in their communities
Employers feel more confident when assessing the value of an out of classroom experience when they know the co-curricular activity is recognized and supported by the institution.
A Co-Curricular Activity Must
be an approved Selkirk College activity
be overseen by a Selkirk College faculty/staff validator
be linked to CCR Competency Framework
not be included as a component of a “for credit” course or program
