WORK BASED LEARNING BENEFITS EVERYONE

See how you can step in.

Join The Navigator

The Navigator is an online marketplace for NC educators and workforce development professionals to integrate work-based learning resources into their classrooms. The platform operates as an online shopping experience, only everything on The Navigator is free! The inventory is made up of employer-offered work-based learning activities ranging from guest speakers to apprenticeships. Employers post opportunities, which we call resources. Educators and workforce teams can search by keyword, county, or by using any number of filters including career clusters and age of the audience. Students gain increased access to work-based learning opportunities.

STEM related jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of non-STEM jobs over the next 10 years.

40% of companies nationwide report they cannot find the workforce they need to fill entry level and middle-skills jobs.

According to a recent Georgetown study, 67% of working-aged adults will need to attain some post-secondary education by 2025.

OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGAGE

Many students are unaware of fascinating careers available within their local communities and across the state. Also, often times, traditional classroom curriculum and adult support services lack the real-world visibility needed to adequately prepare students for a rapidly changing economy.

 

Join the hundreds of North Carolina businesses who are helping to expand perspectives for current and future job seekers. If you can see it, you can believe it; therefore, you can achieve it. However, most students do not have the opportunity to see it. Help us better prepare North Carolinians with job shadowing and job exposure. A first step in the work-based learning continuum.
