Event Description:

Join us for an interactive dialogue outlining
what exactly is Work-Based Learning.
Discover how internships, earn and learn programs and apprenticeships can help solve your workforce needs, how your company or education provider can benefit from the new Indiana Graduation Pathways, or seek program advice and technical assistance, and learn the benefits of forming public-private partnerships. Following the discussion engage in a hands-on working session where you will be guided through the next steps towards success.

Executive Director, Darrel Zeck, and Senior Director, Carrie Lively, provide an interactive dialogue outlining what exactly is Work-Based Learning. Newly established as part of Governor Holcomb’s NextLevel Agenda, The Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship serves to develop and implement a framework of various work-based learning pathways for both youth and adult populations.

To accomplish, the office focuses on three objectives:
• First, coordinate efforts and partner with the U.S. Department of Labor to expand registered apprenticeships.
• Second, develop flexible and scalable programs that focus on the state’s key economic sectors and regional high-wage, high-demand occupations.
• Third, build public-private partnerships to increase business and industry engagement with education systems.

Speaker Bios:
Darrel Zeck
is the Executive Director of Indiana’s Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship. Previously, he served as Vice President of Stark Industries, an aerospace manufacturing company, in Terre Haute. In that role, he was responsible for business development, military
and government relations, and workforce development. Appointed by Gov. Mike Pence in 2014, and reappointed by Gov. Eric Holcomb, Mr. Zeck served as a State Trustee for Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana where he held the positions of board secretary and chairman of the Workforce Alignment Committee. On a national level, he was a member of the Public Policy and Advocacy Committee for the Association of Community College Trustees, and has also served on various community and professional boards. In addition to being a pilot for more than 25 years, he is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, where he worked with Air Force One and other special operations missions. Most recently, he worked in command and control with the 181st Intelligence Wing of the Indiana Air National Guard. 

Carrie Lively is the Senior Director of Indiana’s Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship. Prior to her current role, she worked in the public education system as a teacher, school counselor
and administrator. In these positions, Carrie focused her efforts to improve curriculum, ensuring that it provided students a real-world application of the information they were learning on a daily basis. Ms. Lively also developed and expanded robust work-based learning programs, which offered students experience that deliberately connected high school education with their post-high school aspirations. It is this experience that led her to her current role. As the Senior Director of the Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship, she is dedicated to expanding work-based learning opportunities for all Hoosier students and adults. She serves on numerous state and national policy advisory boards to continue to advocate for the expansion of work-based learning for students across America.  Carrie is a proud former student-athlete and coach, and a graduate from Ball State University, where she has earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees.
