Business and Industry Partnerships

‚ÄčBusiness and industry partnerships help Oakland Schools keep its pulse on providing relevant learning opportunities to the students and families it serves.  ‚ÄčThese partnerships, which connect business and community leaders, educators, and students of Oakland County Career and Technical Education programs, ensure that the pipeline of future employees are better prepared to meet workforce demands and put their expertise to use in the local community.  Changes in technology and globalization necessitate new industry workforce requirements.  It is critical for these  programs to partner with local employers to verify that the content taught in the classroom meets workplace needs.
