Strong Labor Market Connections and Payoffs

Through strong connections with labor market professionals, local economic development agencies, and local workforce investment boards, colleges develop programs that are focused on high demand occupations that have family-sustainable wages and opportunities for advancement. By involving employers and workforce professionals in curriculum development, colleges create short-term, stackable credentials and/or modularized curriculum aligned with industry-recognized skills and knowledge that prepares learners for an entry-level job through to a career. Colleges also build career exploration and career awareness strategies into academic and college success courses.
