Leadership Development Academy: Learning Today to LEAD Tomorrow

The National Career Pathways Network is dedicated to serving its members and the career pathways community including strengthening the Career Pathways message to the field. The NCPN Leadership Development Committee provides professional, career, and leadership development to career pathways leaders (career pathways coordinators, CTE directors, occupational deans, workforce development personnel, adult education educators, and counselors) to assist them in contributing to the broader goals of their institutions and the stakeholders they serve. To that end, the NCPN Leadership Development Academy, a year-long professional development program, was created.

  • How often does the cohort meet? Monthly webinar sessions and other innovative experiences. All meetings are virtual except for graduation at the NCPN Conference.

  • What is the cost? $600

The LDA focuses on leadership skills for a Career Pathways System (local, regional, or state) and the four core principles of the CTE Blueprint, the Department of Education's 10 Component Framework for Programs of Study, WIOA legislation, and the Department of Labor's Six Key Elements for Career Pathways.
