28 Questions for You What are some ways to involve employers in your community?

29 HOW TO BE INVOLVED “Create something that will make the world awesome.” – Kid PresidentKid President

30 30  Who are the employers in our community?  Who are the larger employers, what common vacancies are anticipated with smaller employers  What do those occupations look like and what skills are needed  What are the anticipated earnings for the emerging jobs  What knowledge and skills are required for local occupations?  Academic skills, technical skills, “soft” skills  How do we support the transitions from middle-high-postsecondary-career  What postsecondary credentials or industry certifications are needed in the area?  What are the programs in high school that align to community needs? What are the gaps?  How do we inform parents and students on:  New jobs/industries in the future  New trends in existing industries  What are the economic development priorities 2, 5 and 10 years out Checklist 1: Collect Data Data-Driven Decision Making

31 31 Checklist 2: Planning Translating Pathways TN to your system  Have a strong Industry Advisory Council and develop relationships with local businesses and community intermediaries  Program choice and curriculum development in alignment with community needs  Program improvement (facilities, resources, public relations, legislative and financial support)  Student engagement, placement, and career advising  Community engagement to drive funding, communications, support  Develop relationships with local postsecondary institutions and build bridges  Early postsecondary opportunities (dual credit/dual enrollment)  Strengthen career advising to support students in choosing a pathway  Align high school programs of study to postsecondary offerings

32 32  Develop a strong understanding of the needs of your students and community  Conduct research-based local planning for CTE programs  Offer opportunities for career guidance for students  Offer Work Based Learning opportunities for all students  Support opportunities for students to practice and demonstrate their learning through CTSO events, work-based learning, etc.  Implement aligned curriculum and communicate long-term goals and objectives of your local CTE program to students, parents, employers and the community Checklist 3: Implementation and Support Developing rigorous, relevant, learner-focused programs leads to clear career pathways

33 33 Having strong business and industry input and clear opportunities for students could be the difference in: Employers needs and workforce skills unmatched Students are not successful in college and career Employers unable to find skilled employees Teachers not equipped to build skills effectively Students don’t have opportunity to demonstrate in real-world Schools offer unaligned programs Students enroll in POS that doesn’t lead to opportunities Employers needs and workforce skills matched Students have successful career to support family Employers have strong talent pool in order to grow Teachers are equipped to build applicable skills Students have opportunity to demonstrate skills Employers benefit from problem solving and work Schools offer programs aligned to community need Students enroll in POS that leads to clear opportunity
