Career Launch
Career-Connected Learning in Action
Engineer

The most intensive type of career connected learning program, Career Launch programs combine paid, meaningful work experiences with aligned classroom learning so students can receive a credential and become a competitive job candidate. This includes registered apprenticeships and Career Launch programs in the K-12, CTC, and 4-year systems. We aim to ensure that 60% of young adults beginning in the class of 2030 will participate in a Career Launch program.

  • Registered apprenticeships
  • CTC programs with required work-based learning
  • CTE that meets credential and work-based learning requirements
  • 4-year program with required work-based learning
  • Other career launch programs

“That’s critical to the region, which right now faces a massive workforce shortage in the high-tech field, according to the Southwest Washington STEM Network. An estimated 81 percent of new jobs in these high growth fields will require a post-secondary certification, credential or degree, yet only a third of area students who start high school each fall are expected to earn one.”  Read more in The Columbian.
