California Community Colleges Task Force on Workforce Education recommends ways to increase competitiveness, job creation: Key recommendations of the task force call on the college system to:

• Revise career technical education (CTE) curriculum approval processes to ensure that instructional programs keep pace with industry needs.

• Increase the pool of qualified CTE instructors through hiring practices and consider options for meeting minimum qualifications to better integrate experienced industry professionals into instructional programs.

• Expand partnerships with employers to increase student work-based learning opportunities such as apprenticeships and internships that provide real workplace experience.

• Strengthen students’ career planning, work readiness, employability and technology skills as they build their occupation-specific skills.

• Establish a sustained, supplemental funding source to increase community college capacity to create, adapt and maintain quality CTE courses and programs responsive to regional labor market needs.
