Achieving Student Success Through Multi-College and Industry Training Partnerships — Leveraged Funding Supplied by Employment Training Panel and California Energy Commission
ATRE has been successful at creating a statewide partnership with industry by leveraging contract education and CTE academic programs. This has allowed California’s Community Colleges to develop curriculum and support industry with the immediate needs of incumbent worker training, while providing a pipeline for highly trained students in the future.
Ensuring that California has a Highly Skilled, Clean Energy Workforce.
ATRE (Advanced Transportation and Renewable Energy) represents an array of clean energy technologies that form a critical part of California’s strategy for reducing its climate change impact and its dependency on foreign energy, as well as growing a robust green economy by helping California’s businesses remain competitive in a global market.
California has always been a world leader in clean energy technologies, but to advance our competitiveness a superior workforce – skilled for the rapidly changing clean energy technologies – must exist. Ensuring that California has a highly skilled, clean energy workforce is the goal of the Advanced Transportation and Renewable Energy Sector and the focus of its state-level Sector Navigator and regionally focused Deputy Sector Navigators.
