June 5-7, 2012 Military Career Pathways 101

Military Career Pathways (MCP) 101 course is in its third year.  June 5-7, 2012, over 80 Career Specialists, Guidance Counselors, and Career and Technology teachers from around South Carolina and observers from around the nation learned how Army/military careers fit into the national education 16 career clusters. The goal is to provide educators with a firsthand understanding of military resources, career pathways and benefits.

The unique course offers certification credits to participants. To receive Continuing Education Units, South Carolina Department of Education Credits, or Global Career Development Facilitator Credits, the MCP 101 participants were required to participate in all activities during the three day course and design a military related project they could implement in their communities during the school year.
