CELL Announces Education-Workforce Partnership Grants

The Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning (CELL) is pleased to announce a third round of planning grant opportunities to aid in the development of education-workforce pathways. This funding (up to $15,000) may be used for the research of promising practices and the creation of a career pathways implementation plan. Three new grantees will join the current Education Workforce Partnership network of eleven past grantees across the state.

The Education Workforce Partnership awardees, with technical assistance from CELL, will use promising models of education-workforce alignment to design implementation plans for regional or local sector-based career pathways. Implementation plans might include promising practices such as Early College Polytechnic, apprenticeships, academy models, or more organically developed customized approaches (click here below for further details).
