Capture stakeholder perspectives.

Surveys tailored for your key stakeholders — students, parents, educators, and community and business leaders — will gather feedback on what they feel are their most important needs and challenges.  

Determine success with qualitative and quantitative data.

The KLNA evaluates stakeholders’ learning stages (knowledge acquisition and application) of your program initiatives around three career development pillars (career awareness and planning, school-based learning, and workforce preparation). Program leaders can use this valuable information to create a strategic plan including goals, objectives, and tactics.  

Coaching combined with the very best tools.

Once the assessment is complete and you've reviewed the analysis and report, the Kuder Career Planning System will give your community, state, or nation tools for every age, role, and level of involvement in education and planning.
