Cultural Readiness Certification - Blended Training
CRC is a one-year leadership and mentoring program (recommended for cohorts of 8+) to prepare educators, equity specialists and other school personnel to develop culturally competent learning content, practices and strategies to more effectively address the needs of an increasingly diverse student body.
This certification program prepares participants to communicate to others the knowledge, skills, and supportive coaching and engagement needed to create supportive, inclusive communities of learners. We are readying educators to meet the urgent demand of diverse student populations.
Certification training includes:
One 6-hour training of Let’s Talk About Race (LTAR). This training provides the theoretical framework and foundation to begin your journey of self-reflection. Participants will engage in an exploration of diversity issues that districts face today, identify where and why districts fall short in adequately attending to these issues, and present strategies to overcome the barriers that inhibit or stop dialogue and necessary actions. Finally, you will self-assess your personal history and beliefs to help you understand and effectively resolve your triggers.
Four courses comprise the online study. They provide a comprehensive and engaging foundation to prepare educators to reflect on existing competencies, broaden cultural competencies, and integrate new strategies to increase their cultural capacity both inside and outside the classroom. Each online course will have a 1-hour live webinar at the midway point to work with participants to deepen their understanding of the content and answer any questions that arise through interacting with the content.
The four courses are:
Online resources are available via our website year round as well as access to a forum created exclusively for participants in this certification training. As part of each course’s curriculum, you’ll be provided with prompts or simple, but thoughtful exercises to move you toward a deeper awareness of how you can most authentically integrate cultural competency into your practice.
During your online study and throughout the year, you’ll be able to join with other educators online to share your successes and insights as you continue to put into practice the CRC training.
One three-hour workshop will be offered after completion of the online study and once participants have had an opportunity to begin to implement what they have learned into their daily lives. This is interactive and participants receive both facilitator and peer feedback and coaching to complete the learning cycle and address any implementation challenges as well as share successes.
The certification fee includes:
The cost is $2500/educators (minimum of 8 participants).
