National Skills Coalition (NSC) has published the document Partnering Up - How industry partnerships can bring work-based learning to scale. This document highlights the important role local, industry-driven partnerships can play to align the workforce, education and human services systems. While you may feel like this is 'preaching to the choir', I encourage you to pay close attention to the case studies from Georgia, Oregon, Texas, and Indiana. These case studies showcase four unique, and highly successful examples from different industries, and communities.
Do you have questions after reading these? Share them with us, and we can follow-up with a conversation about how these communities created industry partnerships that harness the education and skills of their adult learners, to drive regional economic development.
