Description Speaker(s)
 
Overview:
“College and career readiness” has become the new norm, with every state around the country anchoring their education system in the goal of students being prepared for life and after high school. For example, to date, every state has adopted academic standards in mathematics and English aligned with college- and career-ready expectations, largely driven by the Common Core State Standards, and most states are developing assessments to be given in high school that provide an indicator of students’ readiness for credit-bearing postsecondary coursework.

While much of the effort to date has focused on the academic preparation needed for success after high school, there is an equally critical focus needed on the technical and employability skills students need to be prepared for their next steps. Increasingly, these skills are intersecting – which is not surprising given that about 80 percent of good jobs require some education and training beyond high school and the increasing demands of the 21st century workplace – but the notion of career readiness still needs to be explored as a separate, albeit related, goal.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Examine this notion of “career readiness” within the broader “college- and career-ready agenda”
  • Discuss major efforts across the country to ensure students are leaving high school and entering postsecondary education and training or the workplace with the full range of skills needed for success (including, but not limited to the Career Readiness Partnership Council and Common Career Technical Core)
  • Learn about what other participants are doing within their institutions and communities to prepare students for lifelong success in the career of their choice.
Objectives:
  • Learn about the college- and career-ready agenda and how and where career readiness fits into that agenda
  • Learn about major reform efforts taking place across the nation to define career readiness and ensure all students graduate (high school or college) prepared for the careers of their choice
  • Identify and share their own efforts to improve students’ career readiness through partnerships with K-12, employers, and other stakeholders
  • Acquire real-world examples of how postsecondary faculty and administrators can support students’ career readiness
