Participants will articulate and use individual ethical principles and relevant professional ethical standards to enhance personal and professional development.

Webinars

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is exploring innovative and economical ways to bring professional development training to the comfort of your office. We have begun a series of trainings that involve participation through a combination of web-based presentations and conference calls called Webinars. These low-cost trainings (no travel, lodging, or meal costs) will enable program staff to receive high quality professional development and remain in their office to provide services to their participants with minimal interruption. Space is limited. Register early!

NOTE — For any webinars for which there is a cost, payment must be made by credit card. No purchase orders will be accepted, even if your registration is processed successfully.

All live APR webinars have been completed but recordings can be purchased by contacting Neda Wickson at (neda.wickson@coenet.us).

Onboard

Hit the Ground RunningCouncil for Opportunity in Education's Orientation and Professional Development Program for College Access and Success Professionals

New to college access and success? Or, do you need a refresher? COE's Onboarding Orientation and Professional Development is designed to bring you quickly up to speed with three modes of learning. First, a one-on-one conversation with a supervisor identifies pressing professional development needs. Second, an on-site, in-person workshop affords the opportunity to connect to leader experts from other programs. Finally, the online learning modules enable practitioners to review the history, resources, regulations and effective strategies to do their job competently and successfully.
