Evolving Partnerships to Enhance Transition: Meeting POS Expectations
Morelock, Kristy
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v87 n1 p44-47 Jan 2012
Finding the best way for students to learn and achieve success is of utmost importance to the State of Illinois and the nation as a whole. College and career success is critical to the national and state economy. Career and technical education (CTE) has been central to this call for greater college completion, and the credentials that CTE provides to both traditional and nontraditional student populations have emerged as one of the most important elements in the completion agenda throughout the country. The Illinois Programs of Study (POS) framework uniquely positions the state to achieve the goal of fully articulated curriculum from secondary to postsecondary education, and to ultimately meet the call for greater college and career success. To strengthen the implementation of POS in Illinois, the Illinois Community College Board developed a statewide framework that focuses on strong stakeholder partnerships in POS implementation, and underscores that outcomes and continuous improvement are the center of program development and delivery.
