Business Experiential-Learning Commission Meeting to be Held November 4

The Business Experiential-Learning Commission will develop, evaluate and implement a systemic solution for integrated work-based education and training to meet the needs of Colorado’s economy. The Commission focuses on three main areas: engaging business involvement in educating and training students and workers in partnership with the State’s K-16 education system, workforce system and related civic agencies; creating electronic access for students, interns, apprentices and workers to document skills they have obtained in the workplace, and to share that information with the K-16 system to support curriculum development; and leveraging existing resources to create a portal of information to connect students, job-seekers, schools, employers and civic agencies with experiential learning, training opportunities and careers.

The Business Experiential Learning Commission will hold a meeting November 4, 2015 at 8:00 am in Denver. Space is limited and will be provided on a first come first serve basis, if you are interested in attending please RSVP to kathryn.nay@state.co.us; location details will be sent to attendees.
