Finding and Engaging Employer Partners
Simple and effective strategies for identifying prospective employer partners, establishing a relationship, and getting a commitment
One of the biggest challenges in CTE is finding partners to support your work-based learning efforts and drive your advisory board. Most people feel uncomfortable making cold calls, and educators are no exception, so we put off that outreach work as long as we can. However, there are partnership development strategies that don’t involve those dreaded cold calls, and there is an established process for turning those prospects into committed partners and advocates. Join Brett Pawlowski of NC3T, lead author of The Employer Engagement Toolkit, to find out how you can build the partnerships you’ve always wanted.
