About the work-based learning planning and tools pilot

The Work-Based Learning Planning and Tools Pilot is an 18-month project designed to help colleges, community college districts, and Strong Workforce Program (SWP) regional consortia take work-based learning to scale. Participating colleges will build system capacity and help refine technology tools to provide students with greater access to quality work-based learning opportunities. This effort will help colleges achieve their SWP goals and Guided Pathways objectives.  

The Pilot consists of two phases:

Phase I: Planning and Capacity Building
Participants will develop work-based learning plans, articulating their primary objective, goals, and systems and resource requirements to provide quality work-based learning at scale.

Phase II: Technology, Tools, and Services – the Career Experience Suite
Participants will receive access and technical support to implement the Career Experience Suite of tools: Here to Career, CareerXP, and Career Catalyst.

The Pilot is the result of a partnership between the CCCCO Workforce & Economic Division and the Foundation for California Community Colleges. Implementing partners include Jobs for the Future, WestEd, and New World of Work.

Participating colleges

The Pilot group is comprised of 34 colleges, including 6 individual colleges, 3 SWP regional consortiums and 1 community college district.
