Regional PWR Symposiums
Please join the ICAP Practitioners for upcoming regional PWR Symposiums, Showcasing the "C" in ICAP.
Last year the Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness (PWR) Symposium series focused on the ‘I’ in ICAP (Individual Career and Academic Plan). This year, the focus is on the ‘C’ of ICAP. C is for Career Conversations. Colorado’s statewide initiatives are coming into alignment especially around Career and College Readiness (or as it’s known in Colorado, Postsecondary and Workforce Readiness), Career Pathways and Work-Based Learning.
