An important tenet of education, particularly of technical education, is the concept of life-long learning. In keeping with that concept, staff members at Atlanta Technical College are encouraged to participate in staff development activities. These activities include back-to-industry experiences, skill updates, seminars, workshops, and classes.
Staff Development is encouraged for two primary reasons:
- To promote personal and professional growth and development.
- To keep up with the changing demands of industry so that staff may stay prepared to offer optimum quality instruction.
Staff development needs will be considered in the areas of personal and professional growth.
The employee and supervisor will collaborate on the staff development needs for each year during the performance management conference.
