What is a Guided Career Plan?

A Personal Growth Plan (PGP) helps students and parents track progress and goals through the school years and prepare for post-high school plans.

 

Starting in middle school and throughout high school each student develops and maintains a PGP to help build strong academic habits, set relevant and achievable goals and begin envisioning their future college and career plans.

Each student’s Personal Growth Plan includes information and/or goals in the following areas:

Academic Indicators

Academic Indicators are used to help determine students’ academic and graduation readiness. For college-bound students, they are used to help determine their college-readiness.

Career Readiness Indicators

Career Readiness Indicators are industry-specific indicators used to assess students’ chances of success as a new employee in a specific industry. The indicators used are based on the students’ specific career goals. For college-bound students, these indicators are used to help assess their success in college/university.

Career Readiness Skill Areas

Career Readiness Skills Areas and the Career Readiness Indicators complement one another. Skill areas are basic industry-identified skill-sets that new employees should have in order to increase the new employees’ likelihood of success in their specific career fields.

Career and College Planning

Career and College Planning involves incorporating readily-available, web-based planning tools to help guide the decision-making process for students. Incorporation can start as early as elementary school. The fundamental career coaching principles that students learn during this phase prepare them well beyond high school and for the 21st Century workplace.

Bring Your Children's Plans to Life

The Personal Growth Plan expands career exposure, exploration, and planning by encouraging internships and work-based learning experiences for all students. Industry measurements and indicators help students make informed choices for high school and beyond; set relevant and achievable goals; and take action to achieve their goals. Parents, teachers, counselors, tutors, mentors and any other stakeholder can now provide consultation and support in a coordinated fashion to help guide students throughout the career readiness process. Each student has a personalized learning path featuring milestones to measure students’ growth and progress.

Testimonials

"First, I feel less alone in my struggle to provide the guidance my child needs. I thought I was the only one fighting to get my child into specific classes that the school may say are closed or won’t be offered this year. Having had to do the planning on my own for my eldest child, I feel as though the possibilities for my 2nd, Josie, are less limited with someone in our corner who believes in my child the way I do.

 

It is good to hear where we have taken the correct paths, but more valuable to know about steps we hadn’t considered. And now it is not just my voice telling Josie she is a whole package type of individual, she is hearing it from you. The value of support and a belief in a child, from outside the parent, is priceless. It has taken her ember and made it a flame of belief in herself. Thank you."
