What is a work-based learning intermediary?

An intermediary is an individual that connects teachers and students with quality industry professionals and/or career mentors. In the realm of work-based learning, intermediaries such as those that work for Hawaii Workforce Pipeline, identify or create internship opportunities, small or large-scale virtual and in-person career fairs, teacher externships, field trips, and much more. As intermediaries, it is our kuleana or job to do the research, outreach, and management of the chosen work-based learning activity. Our service allows our education partners to focus on preparing their students and teachers for their chosen work-based learning activity. With our intermediary support, our education partners are able to meet and/or surpass their workforce development and career awareness goals for their schools. If you would like to learn more about what intermediary support can do for your school, please email support@hawaiiworkforcepipeline.com.
