In conjunction with the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD) and Advancing Credentials Through Career Pathways, the National CTC recently helped develop a special 12-page “toolkit” designed to thoroughly explain the Business and Industry Leadership Team (BILT) process so that educational institutions can more easily implement the model. Active, regular engagement with business and industry experts is essential to make sure program curriculum aligns with workforce needs.
