Sector: Across all CTE TOPS and Sectors
Project Description: Currently, each educational entity in the region manages and facilitates advisories to support their individual CTE programs. The demand for business partner engagement far exceeds the available supply of quality business partners. Limited resources (including time, money, and personnel) impact regional business partners and make it difficult to meet the growing demand in the region. The project will develop regional and sub-regional advisory committee(s) that will serve both community colleges and K-12 feeder schools. The project will collaborate with the IEEP to convene and facilitate advisory meetings and strengthen industry-education relationships. The project will also promote concurrent curriculum revisions (when needed) and help ensure that programs accurately predict skill requirements to develop a workforce that will meet the future needs of industry.
