NEC Releases 4th Edition of Education-Industry Partnership Directory

Updated Directory Highlights Over 100 Education-Industry Partnerships

The New England Council is pleased to share with you the fourth edition of “Partnerships for the Talent Pipeline: Directory of New England Education & Industry Partnerships.” This updated version of the directory -which was first released in the fall of 2016 and updated in 2018 and 2019 – highlights over 100 programs affiliated with educational institutions throughout New England which aim to connect students and employers in order to strengthen our regional workforce.  As educators, employers and community leaders wrestle with how to best prepare students for a successful career, these innovative models are being put to the test around our region to ensure that education meets changing demands.

A new addition to this 4th edition is a set of broad policy priorities that the Council has developed in collaboration with members.  We believe that the adoption of these federal policy priorities would be beneficial to the continuation and expansion of these effective partnership programs.  The policy priorities include:

  • Funding for Internships, Innovation, and Career Counseling
  • Tax Incentives
  • Work Study Expansion
  • Pell Grant Expansion
  • Competency-Based Education

The Council hopes that this updated directory will continue to be a useful resource to policymakers and other stakeholders, and will encourage employers and educational institutions to continue to pursue and expand partnership initiatives that develop our region’s talent pipeline.
