Seamless WBL

Every Learner with a Dream and a Plan

The National Center for College and Career Transitions, or NC3T, has a twofold mission: “Every Learner with a Dream and a Plan, and Every Community with a Capable, Ready Workforce.” The organization works to connect schools, postsecondary institutions, and employers in order to introduce students to the array of options available to them and to help them prepare for the types of opportunities for which they are best suited.

NC3T provides planning, coaching, technical assistance and tools to help community-based leadership teams plan and implement their college-career pathway systems, as well as a range of tools and other services to help schools and colleges provide every student with an opportunity to participate in Career Connected Learning.

  • A Robotic Simone Biles
    by Brett Pawlowski October 3, 2019
