The Gateway Initiative and Coastal Alabama Community College collaborative recently organized a workshop for guidance counselors from all Baldwin County schools to provide innovative modes of work-based learning. Presentations gave special emphasis on how high school students can earn stackable credentials in the areas of registered apprenticeship and technical education dual enrollment.
"Our goal is to provide students opportunities to combine technical classes with one-the-job paid experiences. According to Tyler Brunson of the Gateway team, "we now have the model in place to work with schools to develop pre-apprenticeship programs that lead directly to a high school diploma, dual enrollment credit at Coastal, and a recognized national credential."
