TAACCCT grantees are invited to a series of pre-meeting events prior to the start of the Workforce Development Institute. The events begin with an evening reception on January 29. During the morning of January 30, we'll share strategies with other colleges focused on accelerating community college student success and advancing connections to the labor market. During the afternoon, a working session will help you develop strategies to sustain and scale your TAACCCT work, statewide.

January 29, 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. Evening Reception

TAACCCT grantees are invited to attend a networking reception with workforce-focused colleges that meet as the Community College Workforce Consortium (CCWC). The reception features a plenary speaker and will conclude the evening with time for dinner on your own.

January 30, 8:30 – 12:30 p.m. Improving Students’ Career Success Now and into the Future
During this morning session, TAACCCT grantees will join CCWC for interactive sessions focused on topics that include preparing students for the workplace of the future, and innovative strategies to demonstrate job placement success.

January 30, 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Scaling & Sustaining TAACCCT Strategies Statewide
In the afternoon, TAACCCT grantees will first hear from fellow grantees who have scaled the work of their consortia to colleges across their states, built lasting systems for connections to industry, and improved student career outcomes. Then, in a hands-on session, you will be able to apply the scaling strategies used by the panelists to your sustainability efforts.
