with Gabby Sloss, ODE, Workbased Learning & Apprenticeship Specialist
All Oregonians deserve meaningful careers that support them and their families while they contribute to their communities. Expanding work-based learning opportunities in equitable ways ensures that more learners--- youth, young adults, and adults, have the professional skills and social capital to be successful when they transition from education and training into the workforce. Perkins V has highlighted Work-Based Learning not only as a program quality indicator, but as a critical bridge between what learners are learning in the classroom to the world of work that helps them to make informed decisions about their educational and career goals. Attendees will learn about Oregon’s vision for Work-Based Learning, Perkins V requirements for definitions and performance metrics, and collaboration efforts in building a WBL infrastructure in Oregon.
