This section of Preparing for Work is designed to help program designers and managers make a preliminary selection of curriculum materials that might best fit with the needs of potential participants, with the overall program goals, and with the demands and opportunities of the local economy. Our online program assessment tool will help you look at the goals, needs and strengths of your program and learners.
- Begin by taking the quick program assessment which will generate curriculum suggestions and a printable summary of your program needs.
- Look at the curriculum descriptions and reviews with this information in mind.
- Examine the materials fully before making a final decision. In some cases this involves contacting the organization who authored the materials.
- Once you have selected a curriculum, review suggested steps to take when adapting materials.
