Faculty and student attendance at industry-college convenings is driving employer engagement and yielding actionable intelligence for programs and student career insights and opportunities.
During the past few months 731 students from LA County’s 19 community colleges have engaged with employers in student-focused work-based learning and internship webinars facilitated by CCW. The level of deep interaction has been tremendous and we thank our employer participants for answering the many, many, many questions posed by students seeking careers in the industries represented by those business leaders.
In addition, 119 faculty members from the community colleges engaged with employers for the purpose of discussing specific occupational programs, curriculum, and the industry trends that are shaping skills requirements for those occupations. These exclusive convenings specifically for community college faculty are what makes the CCW Regional Program Advisories so valuable.
