New Work-Based Learning Coordinator Program

VT-HEC is happy to announce the development of a new Work-Based Learning program.

The VT-HEC Work-Based Learning Coordinator (WBLC) pathway to licensure program will provide an 18 credit series of courses. The courses are designed to meet the licensure requirements for candidates who will pursue the endorsement through the AOE Transcript or Peer Review process.

Courses can be taken as part of the sequence or as stand-alone courses. All courses offer graduate credits through our partner, Castleton University (CU).

The coursework will address topics that may also appeal to community-based learning coordinators, guidance counselors, special educators, flexible pathway coordinators, coop coordinators, classroom teachers, career development counselors, job coaches, vocational rehabilitation counselors, administrators and others.

The first course will be offered fall of 2019, Work-Based Learning: Providing Effective Opportunities for Students, Schools and Businesses, and a new course, Legal and Safety Issues of Work-Based Learning, spring 2020.  

Though still under development, the entire course sequence will address all WBLC competencies, as well as other related topics, including WBL as a flexible pathway, program development and community partnerships, diverse learners and equitable access, student training plans and assessment, and career development.
