Career Coordinators’ Network

What are career coordinators?

Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, RIDE is encouraging all high schools to designate a “Career Coordinator.” Career Coordinators will manage work-based learning for their school and serve as the key work-based learning contact person for both students and external stakeholders (including business and industry groups, RIDE, and the Statewide Career Readiness Intermediary). Career Coordinators are focused on ensuring students’ readiness for success during their work-based learning experiences and on their future career pathways. We are building a robust network and welcome new members!

Read the Career Coordinator job responsibilities. If you are a principal or superintendent, please use this survey to identify your career coordinator.

Work-based learning information

The key document guiding work-based learning (WBL) in Rhode Island is the WBL Guidance from the Governor's Workforce Board. To provide additional clarifications to that document, please see the WBL Frequently Asked Questions from RIDE
