Webinar Announcement: Career Readiness and Work-Based Learning: Experiences in Seven States

Release Date: 

May 16, 2018

In partnership with the National Association of State Boards of Education, the Washington State Board of Education is hosting a pair of online forums in which leaders from seven states will share innovative approaches to preparing students for life after high school. Led by Randy Spaulding, the board’s executive director, and moderated by board member MJ Bolt, panelists will describe work-based learning opportunities in their states: youth apprenticeships, internships, and career and technical education programs. They will also address coordination across multiple agencies, best practices for engaging employers, and alignment of work-based learning with graduation requirements and postsecondary pathways.

Panelists include leaders in K-12, higher education, CTE, workforce development, and business from across the country. You are invited to join them for one or both panels. Registrants will be able to see and hear the presentations and discussion, submit written questions to panels, and access informational documents provided by panelists.

The first panel will be on Tuesday, May 29, 2:00 to 3:30 pm EDT (11:00 to 12:30 pm PDT).

The second panel will be on Wednesday May 30, 2:00 to 3:30 pm EDT (11:00 to 12:30 pm PDT).
