• Community Partnerships

    The five county-based vocational and technical schools are proven providers of career and technical education. These innovative schools collaborate with employers to provide a wide range of programs that respond to local, regional and statewide employment and economic needs and prepare students for the technology-driven jobs of today and tomorrow. Our schools work closely with active members of the business community to ensure maximum relevancy.

     

    Maximum Relevance Achieved by Consulting Advisory Committees
     
    Advisory Committees, comprised of some 250 active members from business, labor, and industry, lead to program effectiveness. Input from the committees help keep programs and services current. The groups review curriculum and make recommendations for program and equipment modifications. This input keeps programs realistic and closely related to the employment needs in Middlesex County. Committees generally have at lease 5 members that represent employers, organized labor, business community and the general public. Many members are employers of students.

     

    “Staying connected to Business and Industry and the community means staying current. The quality of our programs and students can readily be seen by the number of graduates who either enter employment or continue their education on the postsecondary level.”
