The Progressive Afterschool Practitioner
The Progressive Afterschool Practitioner is a training designed to heighten a practitioner’s insight into their own professional development. It infuses facets of job satisfaction with professional development planning. By reflecting on individual strengths and areas of growth, an afterschool practitioner is challenged to create a plan for professional development by using the Core Competencies for Afterschool Practitioners as a guide.
a. Recall the facets of job satisfaction and explain how to relate the facets to their current practice in OST.
b. Identify growth opportunities and set meaningful goals using the Core Competencies for afterschool practitioners as a self-assessment tool.
c. Produce relevant professional development goals using the S.M.A.R.T. goal guidelines.
As the second installment of the Progressive Afterschool Practitioner, Progressive Too will take a deeper look into professional development planning by examining different aspects of professionalism in out-of-school time (OST). You will be lead through a variety of experiential learning activities that will explore how you, as a professional, can continue to develop in this field. If you are dedicated to bettering yourself, which in turn provides a better experience for youth in OST, this training is for you!
a. Explain ways to heighten professionalism in the OST field.
b. Summarize areas of personal and professional growth.
c. Decide on individual, personal or professional development goals to work on for the next few weeks.
