Co-Curricular Record

What makes you stand out from the rest of the crowd as you graduate and move into your field? From critical thinking, adaptability, and communication, these are all key human skills you will need to succeed in whatever you do.  The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) at George Brown College is designed to help students find opportunities outside of the classroom to help develop skills and capture these experiences on an official document. This not only helps you stand out, but helps you articulate the learning that has taken place to give you a professional edge.

A Chronical of Higher Education survey across industries showed that half of those surveyed said they had trouble filling vacancies in their companies. Even though most applicants had the technical skills to do their job, many lacked the communication, adaptability, decision-making, and problem-solving capabilities to be successful.  

We at George Brown believe that you have the skills being sought by employers and have been learning and gaining them through the various means of participation in co-curricular activities.  By using the CCR you are developing a comprehensive list of the experiences you have participated in, along with an understanding of the skills you have gained through your participation in the experiences.

What is the CCR?

The CCR is an online portal that allows you to develop a comprehensive list of the opportunities that you have been involved with and the subsequent soft skills that have been gained by participating in those respective experiences and find opportunities to develop the skills you have gained through your participation on on-campus jobs or activities.

Why use the CCR?

The goal of the CCR is to provide you with a one-spot stop to learn about the opportunities across the College to support your skill development which allows you to search by either skill desired to develop, or organization you would want to connect with. Finally, you’ll be able to do a general search to find an opportunity to take your experiences and create accomplishment statements that will support the addition of the experiences and skills to your resume and aid in developing responses to interview questions.

The Co-Curricular Record will launch in the Spring 2022 semester, so get ready to take your learning to the next level!  Have questions, or would like to register an opportunity for GBC students? Email: ccr@georgebrown.ca
