- Skills Mismatch
Middle-skill jobs make up the largest portion of the labor market, yet employers can’t find enough workers trained to the middle-skill level. At the same time, many low-skilled and low-income people need better access to middle-skill training and jobs.
Sector partnerships help solve these problems. Through sector partnerships, employers work together with education, training, labor, and community-based organizations to address their industry’s local skill needs.
This summary of our Sector Partnership Policy Toolkit includes a legislative template that can be used to develop legislation to establish a robust sector partnership policy. The template can also be used to inform an executive order or other state policies on sector partnership policies.
