Learn about the benefits of ongoing communication between college faculty and employer supervisors or mentors in work-based courses, in this video from Jobs for the Future (JFF). When faculty and employer supervisors engage one another, it promotes the exchange of feedback on course performance and how to help work-based students progress. Cultivating relationships and sharing information also helps college faculty stay up to date with issues in the field and lets employers know that work-based courses are really helping them fill in the gaps in their workforce. This resource is especially useful for employer supervisors and college faculty.
