ASCA National Model Training from NCSCA

The ASCA National Model is a tool to use to implement your comprehensive school counseling program and align with the NCDPI school counselor standards.

Level I Training- A half day training to inform and create an understanding of the four components of the ASCA National Model.

Level II Training- A half or full day training to break down the four components. The full day training includes a hands on work session with aspects of the four main components of the National Model, develop a management agreement, understand the use of data in a school counseling program, and will develop at least one action plan. 

NCSCA provides trainers, based on availability, for your school, system, or county. Trainers only require mileage and meal reimbursement. Other costs associated with the training (i.e. copies) are not the responsibility of the trainer.
