PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY — December 17, 2020 — Savvas Learning Company, a next-generation learning solutions leader for K-12 education, is excited to announce that it is enhancing its Pearson-developed career and technical education (CTE) curriculum by partnering with YouScience to provide industry-recognized exams and certifications that allow students to demonstrate their learned skills and knowledge for in-demand careers.
Offering a wide array of CTE programs in 14 career clusters, Savvas is committed to meeting the needs of high school students who wish to explore personal interests like financial literacy or pursue a trade career in disciplines such as construction technology or computer security. These programs meet state standards, provide teacher support for differentiated instruction, and engage students with career exploration and 21st-century skills. Through its new partnership with YouScience and its Precision Exams, Savvas combines Pearson’s world-class CTE programs with high-quality exams designed by education and industry experts to match students’ skills to the real-world needs of employers.
“We know that not every student follows the same learning path, and that is especially true for those pursuing CTE opportunities for job-related or life skills. For these students, classroom-to-career learning requires relevant skills-based curriculum and real-world applications,” said Bethlam Forsa, CEO of Savvas Learning Company. “As the leading K-12 distributor of Pearson’s CTE programs, Savvas is uniquely positioned to offer educators the highest quality content now paired with YouScience’s industry-recognized exams, enabling students to gain workforce-ready knowledge and employable credentials.”
Together, Savvas-offered CTE programs and YouScience Precision Exams give school districts the ability to easily implement a next-generation, industry-aligned CTE experience for students. Precision Exams also provides educators with powerful student-performance reports to evaluate growth and promote program improvement. These curriculum-to-certification pathways give teachers the tools and resources they need to build students’ knowledge, abilities, credentials, confidence, and resumés. Savvas has integrated YouScience certification exams with three titles (Personal Financial Literacy, Medical Terminology, and College and Career Readiness) and plans to add more programs soon.
“YouScience works closely with industry leaders and subject-matter experts to ensure that its Precision Exams certifications validate students’ knowledge and abilities while continually meeting the changing demands of the market,” said YouScience CEO Edson Barton. “The collaboration between Savvas and YouScience will allow students to earn industry-backed certificates, opening doors to jobs offered by the local and national employers endorsing these certifications.”
