Turning Your Profile of a Graduate into a Promise!

Hi, friends. During my previous post, I shared a video that describes the benefits of creating a Profile of a Graduate and the six areas of consideration for your profile.

See Video Part 1 from my previous post here.

I created a second video that I wanted to share.  In this video, I talk about three areas for action and specific action steps to turn your profile from an aspiration to a promise.

The three areas of action are:

  1. Create the Profile of the Graduate (the Career & Life Ready Learner)
  2. Communicate the Graduate Profile
  3. Implement the Graduate Profile

See Video Part 2 here:

Take a look at the video. I encourage you to share it with your school team, and then discuss the following questions together.

  • If we already developed a Graduate Profile, are there any gaps or missed steps we should re-consider?
  • How can we improve communication about and implementation of the profile, so it’s not just an aspiration, but a commitment and a promise?

Again, this is a valuable piece of work to build buy-in and unity within your schools and community.

I know that RIGHT NOW, we’re all trying to figure out what education will look like in the immediate and near future. This is pressing and we have to figure out what’s workable, even if it doesn’t seem ideal.

But whatever the delivery method we arrive at, we still need CLARITY and UNITY about the ultimate outcome of education – helping develop an individual who is Career and Life Ready!

Let me know how we at NC3T can help you in this journey. Even if you’re not sure how, but know you need some help, don’t hesitate to contact me directly via email – [email protected].
