2020 Virtual Collaborative

During the entire month of October 2020, we had live professional development workshops, webinars, chats, movies and social events for International School Counselors.

There were at least three to four events/speakers/webinars and chats every day addressing topics that are relevant to you and your work as an international school counselor. People had the option to either attend live or view replays of all the resources and presentations, which will be available online until September 30, 2021. 

Even though the live event is over, you can still join and listen to all the workshops, access all the presentations and handouts until September 30, 2021- as if you were there live! It is so convenient. Think of it as a podcast specifically for your job! Register here.

Testimonials on the International Model

"The benefit is tremendous. As an American overseas school, I follow the ASCA model, but it is not comprehensive enough to cover the uniqueness of an international environment and population."

"The Model give us common language across all schools! Having justification for appropriate caseloads, job descriptions, etc. Finally networking and unity!"

"Using the International Model helps educate school principals and heads about how to develop and support the counseling office"

"The International Model would eliminate the non-compatible parts of various national models that can display a high degree of irrelevance for international schools and students."
