Accelerating Students through the Talent Pipeline and Into Careers

Posted by National College Access Network on February 19, 2018

Are you interested in learning how to take your organization’s advising ability to the next level? Want to learn how to help students actualize their career aspirations through their college options? Then we hope you will register for one of NCAN’s 2018 Spring Training events, Accelerating Students through the Talent Pipeline and Into Careers. Join us for a unique learning opportunity as we further the conversation on how to help students connect their career aspirations to their post-secondary pathway.

This year’s Spring Training events are part of NCAN’s Connecting College and Career Success work funded by Strada Education Network. This work is helping NCAN provide professional development and member services related to helping underrepresented students graduate from high school prepared to succeed both in college and in a career. Thanks Strada Education Network!

Spring Training is a series of day-long “mini-conferences” that focus on one specific subject in depth. This year we will explore the role of advising in helping students make sound postsecondary choices that are grounded in academic and career interests, as well as the future needs of the labor market.

Spring Training will take place at three locations across the country. The agenda and goals for each of the events will be the same, so choose the location that is most convenient for you:

  • March 21: Wilmington, DE
  • April 11: Cleveland, OH
  • April 18: Oakland, CA

Although each location will feature local programs and speakers, the following topics will be addressed at all three Spring Training events:

  • Making Decisions About Postsecondary Courses of Study
  • Employers Supporting the Talent Pipeline
  • Advising for Postsecondary Fit and Match

As each site’s agenda is being finalized, speakers and specifics including registration information will be posted on the webpage for each individual Spring Training location. Registration for Spring Training is FREE for NCAN members!

All members of the college access and success community – including college access practitioners, higher education outreach professionals, community leaders, and representatives from the private sector – are encouraged to attend one of the Spring Training events. We hope to see you there!
