State Policy > Sector Partnerships

Sector partnerships bring together multiple employers within an industry to collaborate with colleges, schools, labor, workforce agencies, community organizations and other community stakeholders to align training with the skills needed for that industry to grow and compete. Sector partnerships can help facilitate the advancement of workers at all skill levels, including the least skilled.

Several states have invested in creating these partnerships in various industries. State policy can support the creation and maintenance of these partnerships and empower them to target education and training dollars from a variety of sources to the changing needs of local industries.
