Workplace Language Standards

Indiana’s legislators created a Workplace Spanish course that requires the establishment of standards and guidance for the field. As the legislation is intended to provide an avenue for students who don’t want to pursue the “academic” world language track, I have been able to maneuver it to allow schools the flexibility to put it where they wish in their language flowchart. It is an optional course for schools to offer so it will take some time for schools to begin offering it, however, I do have at least one school that wants to offer it as early as Fall 2017. With that being said, any samples of courses that are taught at universities, community colleges, 9-12 environments, Departments of Workforce Development, etc… would be beneficial for my committee to review as they begin the standards building process. Thank you in advance for any models that you might be able to contribute.
