College and Career Navigator Training on July 30, 2013

The Illinois Community College Board is excited to bring you College and Career Navigator Training on July 30, 2013 in Springfield, Illinois as part of the Illinois Transitions Academy.  This two part series will be delivered online and in a face to face format.  This training is designed to assist coaches, advisers, and navigators who provide the comprehensive supports that enable adults to succeed in bridge and career pathway programs.

When you register for the College and Career Navigator Training you will be enrolled in Finding True North – Role of the Navigator online course.  This 3-hour self-paced course is a prerequisite for the face to face College and Career Navigator Training on July 30th.  The online course identifies the types of supports that adult learners need to be truly prepared for college and careers.  In addition it introduces the core functions and responsibilities of a navigator, such as coordinating and providing services that supplement academic instruction, which have been found to aid student persistence and success.  We also introduce the core competencies of effective navigators, advising approaches and styles, and Navigator program design elements to consider.

Then on July 30th you will attend part two of the College and Career Navigator Training - Navigating Pathways to Opportunity.  Topics for the day will include intake interview and communication strategies to establish a foundation of student support and career pathways planning.  Participants will identify the key components of a navigator program and evaluate and select tools to use in the development of their own Navigator Program Plan.
