Partners for American Vocational Education, in collaboration with education institutions and health care providers in the District of Columbia, developed a partnership between local education institutions and private sector health care providers. This business-education venture undertook to enhance existing and implement new education and training in high technology skills relating to health care occupations. The joint venture provided service to 255 D.C. residents; 196 were enrolled in training programs. The project: (1) established advisory steering teams of business, education, and community leaders; (2) formed a Health Care Employer Coalition; (3) worked with educational institutions on high technology training needs for the health care industry; (4) developed a plan to coordinate delivery of education services to health care employers; (5) conducted outreach and recruited learners; (6) assessed learners and provided remediation; (7) coordinated job placement; and (8) prepared a guide on development of a business-education venture. (The attached guide describes seven steps: establishment of an advisory steering task force; formation of an employer coalition; identification of an educational institution to work with the coalition; community outreach and trainee recruitment; participant assessment; training program organization and oversight; and job placement. Other attachments include lists of task force and coalition members, needs assessment survey instrument, recruitment flyers, and quarterly reports.) (YLB)
