Educational Planning

Learning is attained through both formal and informal processes. Formal courses and programs most often lead to documented evaluation. Informal learning may occur through self-study, conferences, seminars, reading and participating in a variety of activities. Informal learning is often not captured in a structured evaluation process. A coach can help you identify what you currently know and what you may need to reach your desired career goal. The coach will help you navigate and clarify your charted course. Your educational plan will include:

  • targets
  • timelines
  • resources

Your activity can be tracked to help you stay on course and provide support throughout the process.

Educational Planning can include

  • Licenses
  • Certification
  • Workshops
  • Training seminars
  • Self-study units
  • Transcripts
  • Course work
  • Credentials
  • Performance records
  • Correspondence course
  • Resource search
