Guest post from the Competency Model Clearinghouse

If you are interested in building and deepening effective industry partnerships to better align education and training with business need, the Customizing Competency Models Through Convening Guide is for you!

This new U.S. Department of Labor resource breaks down the process for convening local industry members to customize a competency model in three simple phases: Building Data, Convening Employers and Partners, and Selecting a Post-Convening Path. After working through this guide, you will be able to effectively facilitate regional industry meetings using the U.S. Department of Labor’s competency models to begin to identify regional training gaps and curriculum development opportunities in any industry.
