Key Distinguisher #8: Data and Accountability 

Work-based learning is guided by student interest, labor market, and other relevant data; stakeholders collect information on the participation, experiences, and outcomes of young people. 

Key Features of Data and accountability 

  • There is a system in place to track young people’s interests and participation in work-based learning activities
  • There is a system for young people to organize their WBL-related output (i.e. digital portfolios)
  • There are systems in place to measure and support the growth and skill development of young people and track their labor market outcomes 
  • Labor market data informs partnerships and program design
  • Data is used to achieve the goals of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion (i.e. data is disaggregated to identify disparities between subgroups)
