Published on

With the help of many business partners and community agencies, the West Seneca Central School District participates in a portfolio curriculum and website called the Business and Education Employability Portfolio (BEEP). By participating in BEEP, students learn to possess and showcase skills that employers want, and are prepared for their academy internships and future employment through pre-interview preparation, development of excellent interview skills and knowledge and application of workplace competencies. Through the development of their portfolio students are able to apply 21st century skills, connect globally to the world of work and continue to understand their personal growth.

There are currently 21 schools participating in the BEEP service through the Niagara Frontier Industry Education Council and Erie I BOCES. Learn how the community and education partners came together to develop this program, and how you might implement it in your academies.
