Johnson & Johnson’s highly successful Bridge to Employment (BTE) initiative stems from the use of a common core of scientifically sound school-to-career principles: maintaining high standards of academic learning for all students; providing opportunities for contextual learning; creating links with institutions of higher education; and connecting students with adults in the workplace. This publication explores these and other promising practices.
Topic: College & Career Readiness
The Education & Career Plan (ECP) is a user-friendly digital tool that builds on FHI 360’s College and Career Readiness: A Guide for Navigators, which helps both students and Navigators map and track the college- and career-readiness journey. Four versions of the ECP are available, designed to support students pursuing different paths: those in high school, students in 2–year college programs, students in 4–year college and university programs, and those enrolled in certificate programs. Targeted to 21st century needs, the ECP is a living document that integrates college- and career-readiness exploration and preparation in one organized place. By connecting college and career plans, the ECP helps young people identify career interests and goals; connect career goals with specific qualifications, education, and training required for entry into those careers; outline a course plan that helps them meet postsecondary education and career goals; and record activities and accomplishments in both college readiness and career readiness.
