As a result of credential inflation, degrees are being devalued and that piece of paper is becoming more and more, simply a piece of paper. What’s valuable is, however, practical and real-world learning experiences that provide the navigational markers within a workplace setting.
Building from OWN 20XX, we present our OWN Gap Year program–a full year learning experience, grounded in real-world learning to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to be a competent member of the workforce of the future.
Our philosophy of real-world learning and exposure is highlighted in this program where students are given the opportunity to explore different roles over the course of a year. Within these roles, participants can pursue their interests and develop their passions, and start developing a network that is be beneficial to their character and professional growth.
The course will run in 2 – 3-month blocks, on rotation, and within various settings to stimulate creativity customized to students’ developmental needs.
