Work-based Learning Protocols​

Powerful partnerships are key to effectively and efficiently transforming education. One of the most common pitfalls communities experience when developing those relationships, is short-changing the time needed to design and implement work-based learning experiences. Sometimes planning for work-based learning is limited or not done at all. It may feel like you’re saving time, but in the end it will require more time and resources. It may even result in the loss of a key partner relationship vital to your students’ success.

We want to save you time and resources and help you build the powerful partnerships you and your students need.

That’s why we have detailed six protocols that will develop and nurture more powerful relationships (both new and existing) between employers, teachers, and students. Move your relationships from transactional to transformational by beginning to applying these proven protocols today!
