International School Counselor Week #ISCW2023

February 5-10, 2023

School counselors are on the front lines and are integral to student success. They are the first point of contact for students and families, working to create a safe and supportive environment that allows students to reach their full potential.

ISCA's mission is to support school counselors by providing professional learning opportunities that enhance the knowledge and skills needed to become effective advocates for students. We are so inspired and encouraged by the stories we hear from our counselors, and we believe we must celebrate this!

From February 5-10, 2023, ISCA would like to take time to acknowledge, recognize and honor the vital role that school counselors play. During International School Counselor Week, ISCA will host a variety of events throughout the week to celebrate our colleagues who are dedicated to improving student achievement. Save the week!

The Importance of the Administrator-Counselor Relationship in Building a Caring Learning Environment

Speaker: Graeme Scott 

International students are often challenged by continued mobility and difficulties settling.  Finding their place can be difficult and some thrive whilst others struggle.  This webinar will explore some of the ways counselors and administrators can work together to create a safe and stimulating environment where all students can thrive.  

During this webinar, we'll explore the relationship between school administrators/ leaders and counselors - what can go wrong and how best to leverage this potentially powerful partnership.  A culture of care, compassion and achievement is much more likely to emerge if there is mutual trust and a critical friend approach.
