NCBCE Board chair Albert Eckel speaking on the value of work-based learning with Keith Poston on Education Matters

Topic: Work-Based Learning

Employers across the U.S. and here in North Carolina report they have more jobs available than the number of qualified applicants to fill them. Work-based learning opportunities have been expanding here for both students and educators to give them greater exposure to the rapidly changing workplace. This week we explore some promising efforts to help close the skills gap by linking business and education to benefit both employers and our students.
