Building effective relationships with industry and post secondary institutions: Rural and remote high school student off campus experiences

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The purpose of off-campus experiences for high school students is to develop their skills and create opportunities for contextualized learning opportunities. Oftentimes rural remote school leaders do not have the time to create relationships with industry or post-secondary institutions to
    provide experiential learning endeavors. This study is to gain a better understanding of how leaders in rural and remote high schools build effective partnerships with industry and post-secondary institutions for the purpose of facilitating career and internship experiences for their students. A thematic review of the literature and limited qualitative research study was conducted through interviews. Three principals from Peace River School Division (PRSD) were selected for interviews. My results demonstrate a need for collaboration, resource sharing, advocacy and modeling of off-campus coordinators in PRSD. A conceptual framework was used as a guide to make recommendations from the findings.
