The third recommendation in ACTE's postsecondary reform position statement is to develop curriculum and instructional offerings that link to careers, foster lifelong learning, and encourage completion. Concrete linkages must be developed between middle and high school, postsecondary education and work, with lifelong postsecondary learning a part of this cycle. In this article, the author discusses how the Construction Apprenticeship Program at Central New Mexico Community College (CNMCC) and the College and Career Transitions Initiative (CCTI) project at Northern Virginia Community College had accomplished the goal to improve outcomes for students. Both of these programs had accomplished this goal through clearly delineated pathways, high levels of collaboration, curriculum and instruction that is integrated across learning levels and strong links to industry.
