Prepr has partnered with Outcome Campus Connect (OCC) to bring more work-integrated learning opportunities, in the form of challenges, to post-secondary students and recent graduates nationally. Through OCC, Prepr will post challenge opportunities for students or graduates that are shared through the opportunity platforms at each of OCC’s campus partners across the country. This expanded reach elevates Prepr’s global impact potential while giving students in Canada more work-integrated learning opportunities to get career-ready.
Now, post-secondary students or recent graduates who access Outcome Campus Connect opportunities will also access Prepr’s challenges. Challenges give learners the opportunity to tackle structured real-world problems on their own or in teams, helping them to get the skills and portfolio employers want. Challenges administered by Prepr are categorized as Future Challenges, Prepr Challenges, and Global Challenges. Future Challenges invite students and recent graduates to get involved and learn more about the latest industry-specific advancements and shifting needs. Prepr Challenges introduce participants to MarTech, AdTech, FinTech, Blockchain Technology, Cyber Security, and other technologies that can build solutions to address global issues. Global Challenges empower students or recent graduates to contribute to overcoming global hurdles like food security, equality, clean water accessibility, education, affordable energy, and more.
“We are excited to have Prepr join our network. As OCC deepens our partnerships and collaboration within the higher learning community, we are working to provide higher educators the best possible opportunities to deliver career readiness to their students. Prepr’s thoughtful and innovative approach to skill-building aligns with our vision for the next generation of leadership prepared and committed to contributing to the betterment of our global society.” – Natalie Nitsopoulos, Director, Outcome Campus Connect, at Orbis
“Connecting students and recent graduates to quality work-integrated learning opportunities will help them gain valuable work experience for their future careers while exploring solutions to global issues. We are excited to launch the integration of Prepr into Outcome Campus Connect” says Mark Patterson, Executive Director at Magnet.
“The pandemic has accelerated the realities of the future of work across Canada, and across all sectors. Through our partnership with Outcome Campus Connect, we hope to support the next generation of problem solvers who will support Canada on its journey through recovery and growth,” says Salar Chagpar, CEO & Chief Visioneer, Prepr.
This integrative approach strengthens the mission of both opportunity platforms. By empowering post-secondary students and recent graduates with what’s needed to successfully pursue careers in their chosen fields, OCC elevates the long-term impact of higher educators. In turn, local and global communities benefit students and graduates ready to pursue meaningful careers. OCC continues to partner with leaders in the delivery of work-integrated learning, like Prepr, giving additional work-integrated learning opportunities to students and recent graduates when they need it most and expanding career readiness across the country.
