Naviance by Hobsons To Present at the EDPs Internships and Career Awareness Conference
ARLINGTON, VA - February 19, 2019 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Naviance, today announces intentions to further support Michigan Public Act 227 to increase the number of college- and career-ready students with an emphasis on increasing the number of citizens working in high-demand fields.
Hobsons, the creator of the College, Career and Life Readiness Framework, continues to expand equity and access of critical preparation tools for students across the U.S. Today, 13 million students at 13,000 middle and high schools have access to Naviance, along with more than 400,000 high school counselors and teachers. This includes more than 150,000 Michigan students at more than 100 schools in the state.
“Michigan continues to invest in the future of students and the future of a high performing workforce. The Marshall Plan for Talent creates clear goals, accountability and resources to ensure that the state and its citizens are ready for the jobs of tomorrow,” said Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance. “Naviance is proud to deliver a proven technology platform that will ensure that students identify their strengths, explore careers and find the opportunities that best fit their needs.”
Naviance is pleased with the recent announcement by Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN), the creators of MI Bright Future, to support all technologies that meet the states requirements. “In order to effectively meet the goals of PA #227, WIN is happy to announce the opportunity for partnership with any software vendor that adequately meets the standards, requirements, and goals stated in PA #227.”
“Our students have benefitted from the structured and supported experience of Naviance to understand their strengths, to imagine the potential of their future, to explore and prepare for their career, and to identify best fit colleges and universities,” said Bryan Bruckman, Counselor at Saline High School in Saline, Mich. “We are thrilled to hear that Naviance will continue to align with the priorities of Michigan schools to ensure that our students are career informed, ready and focused.”
Naviance will join the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals for the EDPs, Internships and Career Awareness Conference on February 28 in Lansing, Mich. Naviance experts Dr. Kim Oppelt and Monica Morrell will lead a session from 2:30-3:30 p.m. titled “Supporting the MI Career Development Model Through Naviance and the College, Career and Life Ready Framework”.
