We’re working with higher education and business leaders to help college students develop the skills needed to find employment in central New Mexico. Our shared vision: By 2020, every student will participate in a career-based learning experience and graduate with employability skills.
This strategy currently has one project team. Representatives from University of New Mexico, Central New Mexico Community College, and others have come together to form the Higher Ed Career-Based Learning project team. In the coming months they will convene faculty and employers to have an honest discussion about how skills taught in the classroom translate into skills used in the workforce.
