This 175-page toolkit provides guidance to community college administrators and faculty who are interested in bringing the work-based learning model to college courses.

This toolkit includes the following sections: Section 1: Assessing Whether Work-Based Courses are Right for Your College, Section 2: Building a Team and Institutional Support, Section 3: Designing the Course and Curriculum, Section 4: Training Employer Supervisors and Mentors, Section 5: Delivering the Work-Based Course, and Section 6: Connecting Workers to College.
