Career Development Experience Toolkit Companion Piece

The Career Development Experience Toolkit Companion Piece has been created by Education Systems Center at NIU in partnership with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The document is meant to be viewed in tandem with our Career Development Experience Toolkit, released in Fall 2019. Career Development Experiences are part of Illinois’ broader work-based learning continuum and refer to a broad array of experiential learning that addresses the components included in the statutory definition of the Career Pathways Dictionary.

The purpose of this extension is to explore Career Development Experiences and provide resources to address the needs of stakeholders outside of a traditional high school setting, including workforce development organizations, community-based organizations, and alternative high schools.
