CareerStartNow is an ICTID Center program of the Career Development Academy.

The program CareerStartNow is focusing on infusing career relevance into the continuous learning training activities for teachers and the core curriculums in colleges and schools (math, science, language arts, and social studies).

Career-linked teacher trainings and lessons for students in the last stage of their formal training illustrate course content with applications to future careers, including those in the industries represented in the labor markets in which the schools reside.

The learners in our (virtual) classrooms operating with CareerStartNow principles regularly get answers to those often-asked questions:

  • “Who really uses this information in the real world?” and
  • “When will I ever really use this information when I leave school?” 

Our CareerStartNow Program Start offers support to schools and colleges to meet their staff` learning needs on careers management, combining the most comprehensive sources of information with a personalised  experience and tracking capabilities to help teachers monitor student progress and engagement. 

The program provides an opportunity for teachers to learn how to support students to explore career possibilities and identities at the very time they are developing and testing their identity through peer, extracurricular, and behavioral choices. The students are exploring business or office management activities, development of business plans, or finance and marketing careers.
