Education & Career Plan
FHI 360 has created a high impact digital tool for students to use with their Navigators—the people in their lives who help them with their college and career planning. Navigators can include parents, teachers, counselors, advisors, or any other adults helping young people navigate their paths. BTE Champions and volunteers can serve the role of Navigator.
The Education & Career Plan (ECP) is a user-friendly digital tool that builds on FHI 360’s College and Career Readiness: A Guide for Navigators, which helps both students and Navigators map and track the college- and career-readiness journey. Four versions of the ECP are available, designed to support students pursuing different paths: those in high school, students in 2–year college programs, students in 4–year college and university programs, and those enrolled in certificate programs. Targeted to 21st century needs, the ECP is a living document that integrates college- and career-readiness exploration and preparation in one organized place.
By connecting college and career plans, the ECP helps young people:
- Identify career interests and goals
- Connect career goals with specific qualifications, education, and training required for entry into those careers
- Outline a course plan that helps them meet postsecondary education and career goals
- Record activities and accomplishments in both college readiness and career readiness
The following ECP resources feature all materials to support the High School ECP. If you are interested in implementing the High School ECP with your BTE participants, please contact Tiffany Nesbey (firstname.lastname@example.org) for access to the ECP template.
