The Counselor Educator Academy

Do you teach or plan to teach the Career Counseling and Development course in your master’s program? If yes, NCDA has a great opportunity for you: The Counselor Educator Academy. 

Academy Overview:

The Counselor Educator Academy (CEA) is available for select counselor educators who teach a graduate level Career Counseling course. The purpose of the CEA is to support counselor educators by sharing best practices and providing tools you can use in your teaching. Participants hear from career counseling experts, share ideas, and revise their existing syllabi. CEA participants also commit to engaging in a project to serve others teaching the Career Counseling course.
