Career Guidance Information

The CTE team is working hard to connect counselors and educators in Wyoming with quality professional development opportunities in the areas of career guidance and development. We will be sponsoring a Facilitating Career Development course along with the National Career Development Association again during the 2016-2017 school year. This course will be offered at no cost to Wyoming educators, counselors, curriculum coordinators, and others responsible for career guidance and development in education on a first come, first serve basis.

As information about the course is made available, this page will be updated.
