The main objective of the Texas Career & Transition Initiative (TCTI) is the development of a comprehensive training program highlighting best practices in career services for students. Lone Star College System led this project by establishing partnerships with other community & technical colleges in Texas: Amarillo College & Texas State Technical College. These three colleges were identified as having unique & successful career service practices that align student education goals with realities of the workforce. The program consists of seven (7) professional development modules developed by counselors & career service directors based on their expertise, self-study & literature review.

Most Texas community & technical colleges are struggling to meet the career services needs of students due to financial & human resource constraints. Yet career services are essential to assist students in the completion of degree programs & securing viable employment in their chosen fields. The information and resources provided by these professional development modules are intended to promote best practices in student career services that will ultimately lead to implementation by community & technical colleges throughout the state.

This project (the development of these modules) was made possible through a Perkins State Leadership Grant funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).
