ABSSCTE Middle School EXTERNSHIP
PURPOSE: The ABSSCTE Middle School Externship Program is a partnership with the Career Accelerator Program (CAP) to help middle school staff members gain access to employers in the Advanced Manufacturing industry sectors in Alamance County. Externship participants were placed in two CAP Industry partner sites over four days with hopes that administrators, teachers, and counselors would be able to speak from experience as they advise students on educational and career goals. The externship will focused on those who have the most potential to impact a student’s decision about which courses he/she will take in high school.
This took place in 2019. Please see the pictures below. We hope to offer this opportunity again in the future.
CAP INDUSTRY PARTNERS
Each participant spent two days at two industry partner sites. The participating industry partner provided a real-world work observation for the Middle School participant during their externship experience. They spent time with our Apprentices and/or their Mentors as well!
