Secondary Transition

The Transition to Life After High School

The Center on Community Living and Careers offers training for Indiana middle and high school teachers who need information, resources, and assessments for their students preparing to transition to employment or postsecondary education and planning to live in their communities. Training is offered through CCLC's Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center (INSTRC).

Transition Portfolio Trainings for Teachers

Transition Portfolios are a relatively new tool in the transition toolboxes of Indiana's secondary teachers and administrators. To explore how portfolios are used and how they can be helpful for transition-age students as they plan for employment, CCLC's Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center (INSTRC) led a series topic-based webinars in spring 2022.

To watch the archived webinars, visit the Transition Portfolio Training page on the INSTRC website. 

INSTRC is a project of IIDC's Center on Community Living and Careers.
