Parents As Career Coaches 

This workshop is designed to equip parents with talking points, suggestions and tangible opportunities to help guide their student through the challenging process of narrowing down to their best post-secondary path. Members of the Career Readiness Department will lead the group through curriculum adapted from the Department of Labour and Education in New Brunswick. 
This two and a half hour session will: 
  • help you understand the critical role parents play in helping their child to recognize their interests and unique talents
  • help you understand the career development process so that you can partner with your child in the self assessment, exploration and plan of action stages
  • introduce you to useful print and website career resources, and show how your children can access information and experiences they need to make informed career decisions
  • highlight valuable Kent ISD career exposure programs
