Industry-Education Activities Coordination

Co-ser 550

The Work-Based Learning cooperative service at Ulster BOCES will assist districts in participating with work experience identification, job shadowing, and internship outreach. Participants will benefit from Ulster BOCES collaborative engagement with local, regional, and international industries and employers who work together to provide structured learning experiences for students. These experiences focus on assisting student development of broad, transferable skills for employability, career longevity, and postsecondary education. 

The partnerships with business, industry, community agencies, school districts, and higher education will provide opportunities for students to understand and access the skills required to be employable, productive citizens who are able to balance work, entrepreneurship, citizenship, community, and family.

Students will be directly connected with professionals, they will explore potential careers, and they will manage successful transitions from learning spaces to the workforce and industry places. 

Ulster BOCES employees will coordinate and manage all relationships, activities, and programs with local industries and businesses in order to enhance and to connect academic learning to employment and career opportunities for students.
