Career Identity Advocates & Coach Training

The Career Identity Advocate & Coach Training is a professional development opportunity for faculty, staff and advisors who wish to develop coaching skills to incorporate into their work with students.  Participants will learn and practice coaching skills and apply them to career development work with students, to help students move toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their career pathway, and their choice of major.

As a companion to the Career Identity Program for first-year students, CIAs learn the distinction between advising, counseling, and coaching, and how to draw on coaching skills to help students discern their career path.

CIAs come away from the 15-hour training program with knowledge and practice to begin using these skills immediately.
