2nd Annual TCIS Career Day: Initiate Your Future!

On Wednesday, February 8th TCIS hosted its second annual career day.  The counselling team worked with the Career Day Planning Committee for the past year to host this special event for grades 6-12.

Career Day is an integral component to the Counselling Department 6-12 College and Career Curriculum for students.

The day started with grade 6-12 students hearing from 2 Keynote Speakers; Ms. Cyndi Mitchell, CEO/Founder Ayuda Heuristics, and Mr. Isaac Kim, Managing Editor and Policy Analyst Institute of Korean Studies and Ministry of Unification.

After keynote speaker presentations, the grade 6-8 students broke up into their homerooms and completed Naviance Career lessons and the 9-12 students sat in on 3 workshop presentations of their choice.

We are thankful for all the presenters and PTA who helped make this one of a kind special event possible.  The counselling department has already started planning for next year’s Career Day!

TCIS International School Counselor Association (ISCA) Institute

 

The TCIS Counselor Department hosted a very special 2 Day Counselor Institute on January 19-20, 2017.  This professional development training and program development was led by the co-founder of ISCA, Ms. Cheryl Brown.

The International School Counselor Association is a professional organization providing leadership and advocacy for the profession of school counseling in International Schools.

During the two day institute, the K-12 Counseling Department worked to align our current programs with the ISCA International Model.  The aim of the International Model for School Counseling Programs is to provide a framework for encouraging and promoting best practices among international school counselors.

The counselling team is now working on rolling out their program goals as they continue to grow the TCIS K-12 counselling program within the 4 domains, including, academic, career, personal/social, and global perspectives.

If you’d like to know more about ISCA stop by the counselling office for more information.
