  • Professional Development

The importance of professional development can't be overemphasized, especially in a field as vital as education. Only by continually educating yourself with the latest research, techniques and knowledge in the profession can you hope to stay effective in your career.

Over the course of the next year, ISCA has plans to expand its training opportunities. Our goal is to give you even more of what you need to stay current, bring counselors together to collaborate and share best practice  and serve all students' needs.

ISCA Events

Institutes focus on Level 1 Training on the International Model. They are typically two day trainings.

ISCA Academy

ISCA Academy has been developed to meet the needs of counselors wanting to do more intensive training on specific topics and content areas. Through the array of courses offered at the ISCA Academy, school counselors will be able to upskill in areas expressed in the ASCA Professional Standards and Ethical Standards and Practices.  Whether you are new to the field or have years of experience, with this continued professional development offered in areas that are essential to our role as school counselors in international schools, not only will our profession be elevated but also our professional goals and action plans will be realized.  

Our courses are based on best practice, are research-based and solutions-focused with ample discussion time to allow participants to share strategies or challenges and address questions or concerns.
