Navigator and Coach Capacity Building Project

The NCTN is a nationally-recognized leader in developing and promoting the role of college and career navigators and career coaches at the center of programs that foster student persistence and success. Our face-to-face and online training programs for college and career navigators have been offered in 15 states to hundreds of frontline staff and administrators in education and workforce development programs. The training has supported statewide scale-up of career pathways and integrated education and training initiatives. 

Two hundred career coaches working in secondary and postsecondary programs have completed a Career Coach Certification Online Course that NCTN wrote for the Virginia Community College System to standardize approaches to coaching across all college access grant programs. 

We also offer training for trainers for states and institutions scaling up a navigator or coach initiative. Learn more about the NCTN’s tools and resources by:
