Fulfilling Workforce Needs
Building Thriving Communities
We must adequately prepare our students for post-secondary education attainment and 21st century careers to meet the economic challenges of the coming decades. Business leaders need the future workforce to engage in Deeper Learning, meaning they are mastering core academic content while also learning how to think critically, collaborate, communicate effectively, direct their own learning, and see the relevance of their schoolwork to success in the real world. Chambers can lead collaborative efforts in their communities to address pressing educational issues, better leverage resources and have a measurable impact. The ACCE Education Attainment Division exists to help address the business community's desire for better educational outcomes and to strengthen their position as the strongest voice regarding the need for a highly skilled workforce to meet the demands of our global economy.
The Education Attainment Division will improve the capacity of chambers to engage their business communities to have a measurable and sustainable impact on cradle-to-career education and workforce development outcomes.
