NEW OPPORTUNITY | SkillsUSA Chapter Management Institute:
SkillsUSA is an integral component of career and technical education (CTE). Teachers should infuse the organization’s activities into their instructional programs, enabling students to gain real-world applications to their studies. When SkillsUSA is integrated into the CTE program, all students develop the personal, workplace and technical skills that ensures their college and career success. Being a SkillsUSA advisor shouldn’t be hard or challenging, but we recognize it takes some help getting things setup and going. That’s why we’re here to help!
In conjunction with SkillsUSA Missouri’s State Fall Leadership Conference on October 26th – 28th, we are proud to announce the incorporation of SkillsUSA’s Chapter Management Institute. This addition to the conference provides new and experienced instructors with the tools they need to develop, manage and advise a SkillsUSA chapter in their school or classroom. Participants explore the mission of SkillsUSA; learn to use the multitude of resources available and engage in hands-on activities. The training utilizes interactive sessions and provides answers to questions such as: How do I get students involved? What is the best way to organize our activities? What does a chapter set out to do? What is a Program of Work? What materials are available to help students? This is a must for beginning or novice advisors wanting to start a chapter or better manage an existing chapter.
