Tips for professional development funding
We know finding the funding to attend high-impact, deep-learning events can be a challenge. We recently asked several members how they've leveraged special programs to support their professional development.
Professional development is one of the nine federally required components for Perkins IV Funds. To cite the federal requirements, funds must be set aside to:
provide in-service and pre-service professional development programs to teachers, faculty, administrators, and career guidance and academic counselors who are involved in integrated CTE programs. Topics include effective integration of academics and CTE effective teaching skills based on research, effective practices to improve parental and community involvement, effective use of scientifically based research and data to improve instruction.
Other members have included travel and registration in successfully funded Department of Labor TAACCCT proposals. And have attributed the information they gained at the conference – along with the overwhelming amount of support and guidance from fellow attendees – to their ability to rapidly launch entrepreneurial programming as part of their overall projects.
