Ninety percent of the fastest-growing and best-paying jobs require some kind of postsecondary education or training. Yet only half of all high school graduates go to college, and only half of them ever earn a degree. Something stands in their way.

JIST's new assessment Assessing Barriers to Education (ABE) helps academic counselors, career counselors, and job coaches identify the primary barriers preventing people from continuing their education. ABE ensures that today's job seekers and career managers develop strategies for overcoming those barriers, honestly assess the options available to them, and understand the value of further education. ABE helps individuals:

  • Assess the situational, emotional, attitudinal, and material barriers preventing them from getting some form of postsecondary education.
  • Identify the postsecondary options most readily accessible to them, from apprenticeships to graduate degrees.
  • Eliminate myths about the process of furthering one's education, such as, I can't afford to go to college.

In addition, this unique tool helps counselors, coaches, and administrators to better allocate their time and resources to deal with each client's specific barriers.
