    A FLEDGLING INITIATIVE CONNECTING K-12 WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT

    IN THE PIKES PEAK REGION

    Background:  

    We have a fragmented workforce development system.  There are pockets of practice operating in our community designed to address talent development needs. These practices could be made more effective and efficient through greater alignment between businesses and the K-12 education system. There is need to create a sustainable talent development pipeline that feeds into demanded occupations.  

    With multiple school districts operating in the Pikes Peak region, collaboration between K-12 education and local industry must be streamlined to meet the current challenges of workforce development.

    Opportunities to Unify Education and Business:  

    • Consolidation of workplace learning and training programs to connect K-12 pathways to experiential learning opportunities sponsored by business-led sector partnerships and/or trade associations.
    • Consolidation of multiple, independent school district advisory committees into unified community advisory committees aligned with career pathways programs.

    STAY TUNED FOR MORE NEWS ABOUT THIS ONGOING INITIATIVE!
