For Career Choices Lead Teachers and/or Lead Administrators
Developing Leaders for your Career Choices/ Get Focused...Stay Focused® Series

Imagine that you could develop your own in-house team leader for your Career Choices/freshman transition course effort; someone who had the training and the tools to easily:

  • Provide implementation workshops for new teachers
  • Lead content-rich, capacity-building workshops for their team throughout the year
  • Create buy-in strategies for the rest of the school personnel
  • Oversee the school-wide adoption of students’ 10-year plans as an effective advisory option
  • Facilitate the updating of students' plans in grades 10-12 with the Get Focused...Stay Focused!® 10-year Plan follow-up modules
You will leave the Career Choices Lead Administrator/Teacher Institute with an action plan and all the tools to implement high-quality professional development to improve and ensure the success of your program.

Institute participants receive the Career Choices Lead Teacher Training Manual which includes:
  • A step-by-step agenda for 22 hours of ongoing professional development
  • 22 training videos to make workshops easy to conduct with confidence and minimal preparation
  • Strategies and tools for getting buy-in for the freshman transition Initiative from staff, parents, and community members
  • Innovative classroom teaching strategies that create involved learners
You’ll also leave with the tools and knowledge to share with your colleagues about:
  • Career Choices seriescoursework and the strategies that make it so successful
  • Optional academic and technology integration strategies that can be incorporated into Career Choices classrooms
  • The Get Focused...Stay Focused!® 10-year Plan follow-up modules (for grades 10-12)
  •® and how to use it as a school-wide tool for supporting academic coaching and advisory functions
It's important to note...

  • Teach or Coordinate the Career Choices course for at least one year
  • Attend a two-day Career Choices implementation workshop
  • Complete the Self-Study Quick Start Guide (available through The Teachers’ Lounge)
Who should attend:
  • This institute is ideal for Career Choices Lead Teachers and/or Lead Administrators
