Join us for the third webinar in the the Embedding Equity & Access into CTE and WBL series from Transeo and eDynamic Learning.
In this webinar, we'll speak with educators who are building partnerships with business leaders in their community and creating WBL programs that deliver work-based learning opportunities for all.
This is the second of four webinars in the Transeo + eDynamic Learning Series on Embedding Equity & Access into CTE and WBL.
In this webinar, we'll explore how critical it is to make CTE and WBL programs accessible for ALL students. Students such as those on IEP or 504 plans, who are English language learners, or who may have been a part of the juvenile system, all have unique needs. We’ll discuss strategies that educators and business partners are using to help them achieve their post-secondary goals.
This is the first in a new four-part webinar series from Transeo and eDynamic Learning focused on Embedding Equity & Access into CTE & WBL

From providing equitable career exploration to delivering equitable work-based learning (WBL), as well as making CTE pathways accessible and training staff and teachers to be equitable, you’ll walk away from each of these webinars with actionable insights.
