  44. 44. ICP Example
  45. 46. Why Career Guidance? <ul><li>Career Development is a lifelong process by which individuals define and redefine career-related choices and outcomes. (NOICC, March 1994) </li></ul>
  46. 47. Teacher-as -Advisor Program (TAP) <ul><li>A guidance delivery system </li></ul><ul><li>Whereby large student populations are grouped in smaller pods to receive guidance services including academic development, personal/social development and career development facilitated by local school personnel. </li></ul>
  47. 48. Why? Students <ul><li>Need help to enter a rewarding career </li></ul><ul><li>Need a hopeful vision of the future </li></ul><ul><li>Need the opportunity to experience the world of work </li></ul>
  48. 49. Why? Students <ul><li>Need to recognize the link between the world of work and education </li></ul><ul><li>Need to know that postsecondary education is required in many occupations </li></ul>
  49. 50. Why? Students <ul><li>Need to recognize that the expectation is for them to become productive citizens </li></ul><ul><li>Need to know that they will change jobs several times in their lifetime </li></ul>
  50. 51. Why? Students <ul><li>Will change the way they work because of advances in technology </li></ul><ul><li>Are expected to perform a variety of tasks </li></ul><ul><li>pected to be creative, intuitive, and team-oriented </li></ul><ul><li>Will compete in global markets </li></ul>
  51. 52. Rationale: Teachers-as- Advisors <ul><li>Counselor ratios of 1 counselor to 457 students are common </li></ul><ul><li>Middle school counselors may have 700 students </li></ul><ul><li>Most counselors spend 47% of their time off task performing non-program duties. </li></ul>
  52. 53. Rationale, (cont.) <ul><li>Many school systems have not embraced a systematic and developmental approach using a comprehensive guidance program such as SMART CHOICES or the ASCA national model. </li></ul>
  53. 54. Rationale (cont.) <ul><li>Classroom instructors must concentrate on teaching specific performance standards in a effort to raise test scores </li></ul><ul><li>Instructors have more contact minutes with students </li></ul>
  54. 55. Rationale (cont.) <ul><li>Students need the connection that one caring adult can make </li></ul><ul><li>Students enter the 9th grade with little or no information about the Labor market, graduation requirements nor postsecondary education. </li></ul>
  55. 56. Rationale (cont.) <ul><li>Students cannot make the link between school and work </li></ul><ul><li>Students enroll in classes without the least bit of planning </li></ul>
  56. 57. Career Guidance Strategies <ul><li>Teachers-as-advisors workshops and grants </li></ul><ul><li>Career activities are included within existing programs </li></ul><ul><li>Web site contains a TAP workshop to can be used with staff to develop,implement and evaluate a TAP. </li></ul>
