What are the benefits of my company’s participation with W-FL P-TECH?

P-TECH offers an effective and appropriate vehicle for employers to help build and retain their future workforce. The school design - drawn from research-based effective practices - offers a rigorous academic curriculum, targeted technical training, comprehensive work-based learning and individualized support services and pathways for students. While focusing on each student’s pathway to success, the model also creates a robust talent pipeline to support local economic development and growth and community support of public schools. By participating earlier with our school and students, businesses can help grow their own pipeline. Review our goals to see how our school can help your business grow. 

What is P-TECH?

NYS P-TECH is both an education and economic development initiative serving every region of the state. The P-TECH 9-14 model prepares students to be the highly skilled, critical thinkers and problem-solvers that our workforce requires. For our school to reach the levels of success we envision, it requires innovative staffing, scheduling and instruction, and unique relationships among faculty, school leaders and employers. Below are two opportunities that can begin our partnership, please consider joining us. 

Workplace Tour – a career awareness activity in which small groups of students visit a workplace, learn about the business, meet employees, ask questions and observe work in progress.

Workplace Challenge – a career preparation activity where small groups of students (4-6 per team) are engaged in solving a problem or a challenge issued by a partner business in consultation with P-TECH faculty.
