Career Content Academies
“Career Content Academies”, a minimum 3-day session, involve immersing participants into the student and job seeker work of career development in self-exploration, career exploration and career pathways planning. This professional development includes implementation support for transition planning, individual learning plans, career portfolios and career curriculum integration. Most educator career paths result in going to school, going to college and going to school to work. This path prevents educators from acquiring knowledge of the traditional workplace. Career content academies help educators fill the workplace knowledge gap by helping them develop the language of careers and classroom implementation strategies while helping participants outside of education to develop an understanding of the education workplace and academic language. This collaborative approach strengthens common language and partnership development. Typically, career content academy participants include human resource professionals, workforce and education career counselors and instructors. The former helps support a deep implementation of career pathways into daily instructional practice while building community partnerships in support of regional career pathways and economic growth.
