STEM Work-based Learning Workgroup - May 13, 2011

As part of the State of Illinois' Race to the Top application P-20 STEM Programs of Study (POS) were highlighted as a key education reform to help promote college and career readiness aligned to the State's growing economic development clusters. The State is currently forming nine public-private P-20 cluster-based working groups to develop statewide models for each of the clusters.
Concurrent with that process a separate Work-Based Learning Working Group is being formed to develop a standardized approach to defining and sequencing work-based and service-based learning across all clusters. A second phase will include identifying specific implementation supports for the continuum of work-based learning opportunities.

The Work-Based Learning Working Group was assembled to provide a common set of definitions and a P-20 sequencing of work-based learning activities that can be adopted as part of each cluster-based POS model. The objectives are defined as follows:

  1. To provide a common framework for defining, categorizing and setting a sequence of work-based learning opportunities that can be adopted across P-20 STEM career cluster-based models; and
  2. To identify incentives, key policy recommendations, and a series of resources and supports that are targeted to increase student participation in work-based learning experiences as well as build program capacity.
