I-WIN Workshop: Career Development Experiences
I-WIN members are invited to attend workshops this summer for designing experiences along the WBL continuum. Each session will have a design challenge, along with models and resources to draw from as inspiration. Attendees will engage in small breakout rooms to develop a WBL experience that addresses the design challenge. All stakeholders in WBL are welcome for these workshops – consider the team members who engage directly with young people and/or in the design/implementation of WBL, along with any external partners that would benefit from and contribute to the workshop.

This session will focus on Career Development Experiences - "A supervised work experience relating to an individual’s career area of interest that: 1) Occurs in a workplace or under other authentic working conditions; 2) Is co-developed by an education provider and at least one employer in the relevant field; 3) Provides compensation or educational credit to the participant; 4) Reinforces foundational professional skills including, at a minimum, those outlined in the Essential Employability Skills framework; 5) Includes a Professional Skills Assessment that assesses skill development and is utilized as a participant feedback tool; and 6) Takes place for a minimum of 60 total hours. Career Development Experiences may include any of the following, provided the experience meets the definitional criteria: internship, school-based enterprise, supervised agricultural experience, cooperative education, research apprenticeship, remote work for a client or employer, student-led enterprise, or youth apprenticeship.”

Other workshop dates are June 23rd (Career Exploration) and July 21st (Team-based Challenges). Registration links for these workshops can be found at:
