Portfolio Bootcamp
What if there was a tool that could…
*Provide a more clear and concise educational/employment direction
*Take pieces and parts of unfinished formal education, combined with everyday learning to assist towards the completion of a diploma/degree/certificate from an accredited educational institution
*Be used by people in all ages and stages of their lives; bringing light to their own unique learning history and used towards whatever goal they choose
*Provide a stable foundation of information and documentation

Well there is! It’s called a Portfolio!
Portfolio development can benefit people who are facing transition, whether you are releasing from the military or a military spouse looking for a new opportunity. It is the perfect tool for job seekers, small business owners, someone considering further education or unsure of their next step. Portfolio development provides a platform to demonstrate formal and informal learning towards a specific goal. Career, education, master/mini, entrepreneurial and self-discovery are amongst the many types of portfolios. 

Join us for an informative, intensive introduction to the power of Portfolios!
