Career Education

This series of briefs revisits findings from a group of community colleges’ efforts to redesign career education (CE) programs to better prepare students for shifting regional workforce needs.

Given the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on regional economies today, what opportunities might be leveraged from the community colleges’ earlier efforts to facilitate workforce development? To address this question, this series highlights the perspectives of California Community College (CCC) students, faculty, staff, and administrators, based on several evaluation and research projects by EdInsights focusing on CCC CE programs from 2012 to 2017.
