"Working Ahead": The National One-Stop Workforce System and Career Development Facilitator Curriculum Training for Instructors.
This paper discusses Working Ahead: The National Workforce and Career Development Curriculum, a program developed by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at New Jerseys Rutgers University. The program seeks to provide practical help and skills development to those who currently are, or want to be, front-line workforce career development workers, grounding them in associated history, policy, and theory. The core skills and competencies in the Working Ahead curriculum have been researched and nationally validated by the career development field and satisfy the educational requirement for the new Global Career Development Facilitator credential. The curriculum contains 12 modules (covering 13 workforce development competencies) providing front-line workforce professionals with the skills needed to operate in a public or private One-Stop career center, educational training or job service environment. The paper concludes with specific highlights of the curriculum. (GCP)
