The BILT Model: Building Meaningful Employer Engagement to Secure Jobs for Graduates
3:30 PM ~ 4:30 PM ET
A prime goal of Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT)-supported programs is to educate students to be ready to step into well-paying jobs upon graduation.
The typical business advisory council model may or may not provide this result. This webinar will share a unique business leadership model that actively engages employers in a way that results in workforce-ready graduates. It features the Business and Industry Leadership Team (BILT) model, developed by the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education (NSF ATE) National Convergence Technology Center at Collin College, TX.
