Career Foundations: Making Your Education Work for You

04/24/2020 09:00 AM - 05/01/2020 01:00 PM CST

Description

How does your organization determine a participant’s suitability for education/training and employment opportunities that ultimately lead to self-supporting wages?

Career Foundations is a short, well-sequenced curriculum that helps adults with literacy needs: assess their skills and interests, explore available career pathways at City Colleges of Chicago, choose a focus area or sector, and craft a plan and timeline to college—even if college isn’t their immediate next step. 

This eight-hour train-the-trainer workshop is spread across two-days, jointly created by Women Employed and City Colleges of Chicago, and shows prospective Career Foundations instructors how to facilitate the course modules and help your job seekers plan for a sustainable, long-term career!

After attending this training, you will be able to:

  • Utilize the Career Foundations curriculum including the daily lesson plans and accompanying materials
  • Help students assess their skills and interests
  • Match them with appropriate occupational programs and support services
  • Reinforce the concept of stackable credentials
