Historically, career education has been a focus of secondary education to provide middle and high school students with guidance around their options post-graduation. The introduction of ESSA expanded the view of career education to emphasize K-8 as well. Progressive schools today have a new view of what it means to be “career ready” and they realize that social and emotional competencies play a big role in employability. Even with this realization, schools need support in identifying how to help prepare students for post-secondary success and how to make social and emotional skill-building an important area of emphasis when exploring careers and employment options.
This PD workshop will examine what a comprehensive career readiness program can look like, beginning in elementary school, and how an integrated approach that combines academics, careers and SEL skills can boost a student’s likelihood for employment success.
- Learn how to teach interconnected life skills, tied to students’ future careers, to promote student success
- Understand how to make the important connections, for students, between the skills they are learning and their futures
- Learn practical strategies and lessons they can use to integrate SEL and career
