November 22, 2022

At a Glance

This case study outlines how the Montgomery County Education Service Center (MCESC), in partnership with JFF’s Pathways to Prosperity Network team, has worked to address the mismatch between education and labor market from 2018-2022. It outlines the importance of leadership through the regional Business Advisory Council, highlights the process of documenting skills and competencies for key industries in the region, and describes the development of pathway models that outline key aspects of pathways including labor market information, postsecondary options, college and career preparation opportunities, and coursework. It demonstrates how the region has successfully moved from discrete one-off education and training programs to well-developed regional infrastructure that supports college and career pathways that benefit students, employers, and the regional economy.
