Career Ready, Success Ready
Educating for Tomorrow’s Needs & Opportunities
Whether a student will pursue a career after receiving a two-year, four-year, or advanced degree, is interested in a career that requires other types of post-high school training, or will enter the workforce directly upon graduation, there are a variety of professional and technical skills needed in today’s evolving economy. Too often, education, job creation, and economic development operate and exist in silos without the close collaboration necessary to truly position students for post-K-12 success on the path of their choosing. Our team has a long history of supporting education system and programmatic changes at the district and state level that CFEWP continues to build upon. Our Career Ready Initiative is designed to create coalitions, whose members will work together to better align public schools’ courses, programs of study and partnerships with local opportunities and needs. Coalitions arecomprised of local stakeholders, including state or district education officials, state or local economic development and workforce government offices, leaders from the public and private sector, educators, and communities.
Our Focus Areas
CFEWP partners with state and local leaders nationally to help find common higher ground and improve outcomes for kids.
