The Strategic Employability Skills Steering Committee is a key component of the VC Innovates program. The steering committee was designed to bring together educators, business, and community leaders into collaborative conversations to assess local and regional skills necessary for workforce preparation. Curriculum can then be designed to support a clear and focused pathway for students through Middle and High schools and Community Colleges.
The targeted outcomes are:
- To prepare prospective employees with the employability skills necessary not only for transition into a career field that supports their individual strengths and interests but for life in general.
- To provide employers with the talent pool they need to thrive to support the growth of the local economy of Ventura County.
