Engage – Advisor Training
Engage is the teacher-training program from SkillsUSA that empowers teachers to grow their chapters through the latest information and tools in employability, leadership development and teaching strategies.
This two-and-one-half-day professional development training conference is designed to help teachers better understand and use the many leadership development materials and interactive resources available through SkillsUSA. The program is taught by experts within youth leadership development as well as by guest presenters.
Dave Burgess, author of Teach Like a Pirate, will present a high-energy, interactive and entertaining experience that will leave attendees inspired, motivated and with the practical skills to dramatically increase student engagement.
Advisors will dive deep into the world of chapter operations and discover how to use chapter activities as classroom teaching tools. Answers will be revealed on how to successfully engage students in chapter meetings, committees, recruitment, fundraising, public relations and the entire program of work. Teachers will gain the latest techniques involved in giving clear directions, questions, processing and accessing student achievement.
Engage will focus on new educational resources being launched by SkillsUSA at the National Leadership and Skills Conference. New products will be unveiled during the training, and each workshop will be led by the author of that product. Participants will unpack the new resources and share best practices on how to implement these tools for the greatest impact in their chapters. Teachers participating in Engage will receive a set of all the new resources as a part of the training.
The cost of the Engage conference is $135 per participant.
