Training Workshops for Virginias Career Planning System Powered by Kuder

 

In Superintendents Memorandum No. 223, dated October 29, 2004, the Department of Education announced an agreement between the Department of Education and Virginia Career VIEW to provide career assessment services throughout the commonwealth. Through this agreement Virginias Career Planning System powered by Kuder was adopted and provides a comprehensive, research-based approach to career exploration, planning, and development that meets the needs of Virginia students.

 

The Virginia Department of Education is pleased to announce six regional training workshops. These two-hour workshops will provide your designated Kuder coordinator with information that will allow the coordinator to train guidance counselors, career and technical teachers, and others to implement this career planning system in your school system. In selecting your Kuder coordinator, please select someone who will be able to train other counselors and teachers how to use the career planning system and who is comfortable working with computer technology.

 

There is no fee to attend the workshops; however, participants must pre-register by March 8, 2005. Each location is limited to 30 participants. If the location of the session you request is already full, you will be contacted in an attempt to provide an alternate location. An e-mail confirmation notice will be sent to you, along with logistical details. More information regarding registration and a registration form is attached.

 

The workshops will be held at the following sites:
