NCADD Middlesex is excited to offer a new series of online training courses geared towards teachers and other educators. This training is one of the best Professional Development options available. It provides participants with the vital information they need in order to maintain a healthy school environment.
To help design and develop this Professional Development Training series, NCADD partnered with a world-class training services company to create a state-of-the-art, interactive offering. NCADD now has the training you've been looking for. It minimizes the need for after-hours seminars or in-service training days, which pull teachers away from not only their academic responsibilities to their students, but from their personal lives as well.
Presented in an eLearning format, NCADD’s courses have received praise from both educators and administrators for their ease of use, flexibility, content, and the low-cost. Now training can take place ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!
NCADD’s courses in the Professional Development Training for Educators series are designed to bring awareness to educators, school administrators, and other school professionals on several serious challenges facing our youth and teens today. These challenges can stand in the way of progress in the classroom. In order to maintain a healthy school environment, those trusted with our children’s educational well-being must be aware of these issues, know how to recognize a child or teen who is in danger or in need, understand the school’s policies regarding each issue, and know what procedures to follow in order to report or refer each individual situation to appropriate professionals. NCADD, in conjunction with their training partner MindCross Training, currently offers five awareness courses for education professionals covering a variety of real, critical, and potentially life-threatening or life-altering issues facing our youth and teens today.
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Bullying, Harassment and Intimidation
- Cyberbullying Primer
- Recognizing Child Abuse and Neglect
- Youth Suicide Prevention
Each course provides current facts and figures to illustrate the severity of the topic at hand. Practical guides are provided to help educators recognize the signs and symptoms of each issue. Policies and procedures governed by New Jersey statutes and administrative code are discussed. By taking these courses and understanding the information contained in them, educators and school administrators will take a huge step toward providing a healthy school environment for all their students.
Information in these training courses is presented so that the reader can progress through the course at his or her own pace. Course navigation tools are provided that allow the reader to easily go back to any part of the course and review any information. Quizzes ensure accurate understanding of the information. Completion of the quizzes is tracked for administrators, but specific quiz scores are not reported.
The eLearning format has many advantages over traditional seminars and in-service training, including:
- Allowing teachers to take courses in a stress-free environment at their own pace, either all in one sitting, or in increments to suit their needs.
- Avoiding disruption of student learning due to teachers’ absences to attend off-site training classes.
- Minimizing the need for after-hours seminars or in-service training days, which pull teachers away from not only their academic responsibilities to their students, but from their personal lives as well.
- Reducing travel costs normally associated with training.
