Transitions Level 1

The most comprehensive online training to prepare students for life after graduation

What its about

As educators, we all want to prepare our students for the future ahead. We know that helping our students develop skills to navigate the adult world is crucial, but finding the right program to teach can be challenging.

That’s where Stanfield’s Transition Curriculum comes in. The curriculum, designed by nationally known transition experts, has been field-tested and is now being used in thousands of schools across the US and Canada.

The Transitions Curriculum is divided into three volumes, Personal Management, Career Management, and Life Management. Each volume covers different competencies that are essential to independent living:

  • Personal Management helps students develop skills such as personal hygiene, communication, and decision-making.
  • Career Management helps students build skills that will help them choose a satisfying career, job search, and manage work-life balance.
  • Life Management helps students answer the question, “How can I make choices that will lead to a happy and successful adult life?”

Each volume is filled with highly motivating, hands-on activities that encourage student collaboration and engagement. The program is intended for students with diverse abilities and is suitable for students in middle school, high school, or post-secondary education.

The curriculum comes with:

  • complete lesson plans
  • reproducible worksheets
  • evaluation checklists

With Stanfield’s new online platform, teachers can integrate the curriculum into their remote learning environment, making it easier to reach students regardless of location. The Transitions Curriculum has earned high praise from transition specialists, educators, and parents for its effectiveness in teaching independent living skills.

What you will learn

As an educator, you play a pivotal role in shaping the lives and futures of your students. You strive to provide them with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to succeed in the real world.

That’s where Stanfield’s Transition Curriculum comes in. This innovative program offers a comprehensive set of tools and resources to help you create a successful school-to-work program that meets the needs of all your students.

At its core, Stanfield’s Transition Curriculum is designed to help students make a smooth and successful transition from school to work – and into adulthood. Developed by experts in the field, this curriculum features over 300 detailed lessons, 600 reproducible handouts, relevant real-world scenarios, evaluations, and essential vocational vocabulary.

What’s more, it offers complete support for both educators and students, allowing you to focus on teaching while Stanfield provides the necessary research and planning support to help you succeed.

Focus on Real-World Scenarios

One of the key benefits of the Transition Curriculum is its focus on real-world scenarios that make an impact. Students will receive the most up-to-date and practical information to help them thrive in their own communities.

While college may be a great option for some students, it’s not the right choice for everyone. The Transition Curriculum recognizes this and is designed to help all young adults live and thrive in their own communities.

Comprehensive Resources in 3 Volumes

The Transition Curriculum includes three volumes, and each provides the basis for a successful school-to-work program. You will have everything you need – including lesson plans, objectives, key vocabulary words, preparation and material sections, and SCANS skills references.

In addition, each volume includes student journal updates, individual and group activities, and core subject crossovers. This ensures that your students are engaged and motivated in all areas of their education.

Focus on Essential Vocabulary

Another key benefit of the Transition Curriculum is its focus on essential vocational vocabulary. This is particularly important for students who are not on the college path, as it helps them understand and communicate effectively in a variety of workplace settings.

By equipping your students with the vocabulary they need to succeed, you are giving them a valuable tool that can help them excel in the workforce.

Over 300 New & Revised Lessons

The newly updated SEL focused edition of the Transitions Curriculum includes over 300 new and revised lessons. These lessons reflect present-day economic and cultural realities, including Cyber Safety. This means that your students will be equipped with the knowledge they need to stay safe in an ever-changing online landscape.

Core Subject Crossovers & SCANS Skills Referenced Objectives

The Transitions Curriculum incorporates core subject crossovers and SCANS Skills referenced objectives. This means that you can use the lessons as a supplement to other subject areas, making it easier to integrate into your existing curriculum.

You’ll be able to reinforce important skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, and interpersonal communication, making it easier for students to succeed both academically and personally.

Uses UDL Principles

The Transitions Curriculum uses UDL principles in creating instructional blueprints, making it easy to customize and adjust to fit individual needs. This means that you can tailor the curriculum to better suit your students’ needs, ensuring that they’re getting the support they need to achieve their goals.

The Transitions Curriculum is also the ideal achievement tracking and planning reference for IDEA-mandated summary of performance (SoP) documents.
