  • Why Career Connected Learning?

    This video provides insight into the labor market and what role education should play in setting a career plan for our youth.

    In 2018, 57% of our jobs will be middle skilled jobs requiring technical skills and training at the credential or Associate Degree level. 

    Keep this jobs ratio in mind   1 : 2 : 7 
    Masters Degree : University Degree : One-Year Certificate or Associates Degree
    This jobs ratio is fundamental to all industries - the video explains in detail.
