Support Your Work-Based Learning Programs with Virtual Skill Development Activities

While a variety of online platforms exist for career awareness, exploration and planning, CareerPrepped focuses on the career preparation and skill development component of the WBL continuum. CareerPrepped is a career success system that supports WBL programs with virtual activities centered around student skill development and authentic assessment processes involving CTE educators and industry professionals. Students build, prove and showcase their workplace skills in an interactive environment, while learning how to articulate and evidence their skill claims through a guided process that models the type of self-reflection needed in the real world.
