Session Description: Today’s employers are looking for self-motivated, focused, and
responsible workers. The characteristics of a Millenial workforce are very different than the
baby boomer workforce that is retiring at a rapid pace. If our students are going to contribute to
a positive work environment, we must build those skills in them now. Developing “soft” or “21st
century” skills is as important as delivering academic content. Have a student(s) in mind who would benefit from transition
planning. Creating a plan for movement from high school to postsecondary education and the
world of work.

Session Outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
1. explain the role transition planning plays in an educational setting.
2. identify vocational strategies that allow all students to
3. develop a growth mindset in preparation for the workforce.
4. identify instructional strategies in the classroom and on the job that allow all students to develop a growth mindset.
