East Bay Career Pathways Trust 15-16 Planning Document DRAFT

The EBCPT Working Group has asked for college-level feedback on how each college’s Career Pathways Trust Faculty Champions, faculty, and staff will work with local feeder high schools to collaborate to ensure strong career and college pathways, seamless transitions, and work-based learning opportunities.

Based on CPT Champion feedback, including a survey, regional pathway action team convenings, and reporting, the follow draft has been compiled to document work to date out CPT outcomes, and for review and feedback before regional sharing on 7 May 2014 at the 4th CPT meeting.
