Academic Advising and Counseling Workshop

This professional development opportunity aims to bridge the gap between high school counselors and community college CTE (Career and Technical Education) programs. Participants will engage in discussions about debunking myths regarding counselors and CTE and will learn how to build and maintain effective partnerships between the secondary and postsecondary systems. Join state leadership to learn about the opportunities available through CTE, how to access occupational information for your students, and the benefits of career exploration and work-based learning. Moreover, the session will focus on awareness of nontraditional occupations and the vast range of opportunities they provide for our students. This multi-part professional development series is being offered regionally (north & south) and registration is limited.
