48% of non-enrolled young adults joined the workforce instead of going to college.
With almost half the student population looking to get to work, more needs to be done to help them jumpstart their career before high school graduation. At GPS Education, we believe implementing sustainable work-based learning programs in communities throughout the country is the key to building a brighter future.
Through work-based learning, we give students the opportunity to engage in real-world tasks that happen in the workplace to help them make decisions about their long-term career goals from first-hand, hands-on experience.
When work-based learning programs are successful, families thrive, regions prosper and the nation becomes more resilient in a complex and uncertain world. Together, we can close the gap, develop tomorrow’s workforce and unlock potential in your communities, businesses, schools and students.
Whether you need help designing and executing a comprehensive program or assistance in enhancing your current offerings, GPS Education Partners can walk you through our method of building resilient ground-up and scalable work-based learning models.
When you implement a sustainable work-based learning program, the positive impact extends beyond the school itself, also benefiting:
By providing solutions to help close the workforce gap, allowing for industry growth by filling the talent pipeline with the next generation of workers.
By expanding learning opportunities to prepare them for a successful and sustainable future through hands-on, real world work experience.
By creating success opportunities through augmented programming and new connections, thus closing educational and socioeconomic gaps.
