Colorado Succeeds is working closely with our member Ray Johnson of IBM to expand the P-TECH school model into our state. P-TECH, or Pathways in Technology Early College High School, is a new educational model that bridges the gap between high school, college, and the workforce. Ultimately, P-TECH students graduate with the skills needed for our most in-demand jobs, and employers have a healthy pipeline of talented workers.
We want to make sure students, business leaders, and educators alike know the many benefits of this innovative school model, so we interviewed Ray to get the scoop on P-TECH. Check it out!
P-TECH is not a traditional pathway or concurrent enrollment program. The model is unique in that it helps ensure students receive a high school diploma, a free industry-recognized Associate’s degree, and invaluable professional experience and opportunities. P-TECH is also an improvement over other programs because it deliberately involves business in the planning, development, and execution of the school. This makes certain that students gain the real-world skills needed to grow your business.
Our state is currently looking for businesses across Colorado to partner with on P-TECH. If you’re interested in opening a P-TECH school, let Colorado Succeeds get you connected today! You can also visit this handy page on our site for more information.
