Internship Innovations: New approaches to Scaling Career-Connected Learning

The data is clear: participating in an internship is a gateway to a great first job. But for too many students, access to internships remains out of reach. And for too many employers, offering plentiful, high-quality internships is a hard sell. To address this gap, schools and colleges need to embrace radically new approaches to internships and other career-connected learning opportunities. With an eye towards the most efficient, effective, and equitable practices to address the internship gap, Freeland Fisher will guide you through considering a host of innovative models to help your students build the skills and networks they need to get the jobs they want.

Employer Partnerships

With tight labor markets, rising education costs, and a widening skills gap, educational institutions and employers have every reason to partner together. Our schools and colleges want to understand, and respond to, local workforce needs more than ever before. Simply convening local industry representatives for compliance is woefully insufficient. Thankfully we know what effective partnerships look like and how to sustain them.


Each masterclass in Employer Partnerships covers a vitally important element about the practicalities and challenges of partnership implementation. Learn how we can engage in meaningful collaborations, innovate new structures, and blur the walls of our classroom so that every learner and local partner benefits.

“Everything that happens to you is a form of instruction if you pay attention“.
