Take a role in building tomorrow’s workforce by becoming a CRTC Industry Partner today
Collaboration with industries, businesses, and professionals is a core component of Career and Technical Education, enabling our teachers and administrators to develop Career Pathway programs and curriculums that align with the needs and expectations of both local employers and regional industry sectors.
These partnerships include local business owners, trade unions and professional organizations, and help the CRTC to provide students with relevant, career-focused education and meaningful work-based learning experiences.
Here are three ways industry partners can engage with the CRTC
Join a Program Advisory Committee
Program Advisory Committees, or PACs, are a vital part of each CRTC program, helping teachers to both keep pace with changing industry standards and technology, and keep connected to local workplace needs and opportunities.
Serve as a role model
CRTC provides a career-focused education that helps high school students to explore and energize their career ambitions. You can support this mission by connecting to students on a personal level as a mentor or classroom speaker, or by offering jobsite tours.
Provide Worked-Based Learning opportunities
Work-based learning, or WBL, give students the opportunity to take their learning beyond the classroom. You can help by offering student Internships or job shadows, giving CRTC students the chance to experience the jobsite and helping you to improve your workforce pipeline.
