Developing Your Program
Employer Outreach Activities
Identify employers you would like to see represented on your Business Industry Leadership Team (BILT) and invite them to a focus group meeting to learn about the BILT model and discuss their involvement in co-leading your college’s program development. Note: use real time LMI data to identify the employers in your region that have the most job postings for related technician positions. To ensure optimal diversity, invite employers from small, medium and large businesses and note the percentage owned by women or people of color.
Following the steps outlined in the Business Industry Leadership Team (BILT) Toolkit, hold your first BILT meeting and conduct a knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) analysis.
