Video That Links Students and Employers

AVI-SPL helps community colleges with distance learning and links them to workforce programs. Businesses can connect with colleges, conduct job interviews and recruit talent via video conferencing. Community colleges can also link with their peers so students from one can take courses the other doesn’t offer.

How significant are these programs? In 2013, the Department of Labor made available nearly $475 million for partnerships between community colleges and businesses. A fourth round of funding will be available for applications in early 2014.

Linked Learning

On a related topic, Linked Learning integrates college preparatory academics with rigorous technical training and work-based learning in career themed pathways, including engineering, health care, manufacturing and more. (Take a look at the California Community College Linked Learning Initiative.) Linked Learning students see how what they are learning in school applies in the real world, and they gain the academic and professional skills needed to succeed in both college and in the workforce.  Growth in the number of partnerships between employers, high schools, and community colleges is needed to provide Linked Learning and related work-based learning options for students.

With 31 regional offices across the United States and over 86% of the Fortune 100 as our customers, AVI-SPL can bridge the divide between the private and public sector.  We’ve worked with corporations, school districts, state and local governments and federal funding programs to provide our experience and expertise integrating collaborative technologies across communities.  This is strategic workforce development, and a strategic partner is required to bring these projects to fruition.
