Our class loves the video lessons. They are helpful and clear. The closed captioning is wonderful and students are really interested in the content.
The videos articulate job seeking skills so everyone in class can understand them.
“Now I know how to fill out a job application, and I keep my NextUp master application as a cheat-sheet to fill out applications.”
“NextUp’s lessons provide a lot of useful, real information that students can understand and apply in their job searches.”
“NextUp puts everything into a real-life aspect that allows students to see their success first hand.”
My students ask to use computers during their free time to explore these video lessons.
“NextUp has given me confidence for an interview because I used the ideas given to me for mock interviews.”
“It’s really convenient how organized and easily accessible the NextUp materials are.”
Since I started using NextUp, I’ve seen a dramatic change in one of my students. He went from having an apathetic attitude to requesting more information to now being actively engaged in the job skills preparation process.
NextUp covers a plethora of transitional topics and is delivered weekly. At the beginning of the school year, there is a curriculum guide with topics and dates of when materials will be dropped in your inbox (superb for planning units) NextUp is delivered in concise chunks that are easy to tweak for time allotment of the class. The extension activities are widely engaging. It can be effectively incorporated to individualize instruction. NextUp is an incredible curriculum always ” in transition ” to improve!
The NextUp Currriculum’s ability to be customized to fit the needs of my students has been tremendous. It has helped in creating a vision for our early transition services while students are in high school.
“NextUp has helped prepare my students for the workforce. They are able to create resumés, prepare for interviews, and fill out paperwork in order to help them find competitive employment now and in the future.”
We were founded by dedicated transition educators and vocational rehabilitation professionals. Our experience with preparing students for life after graduation compelled us to develop the NextUp Program.
NextUp can help improve results and help prepare students for employment success in a fun and engaging way.
