Educating the Future Workforce and Closing the Global Skills Gap
P-TECH 9-14 School Model is a pioneering education reform initiative created by IBM, to prepare young people with the academic, technical and professional skills required for 21st Century Jobs and ongoing education. P-TECH represents the best of what public-private partnerships can look like, with students taking high school and college coursework simultaneously and engaging in industry-guided workforce development.
Innovation grows from partnerships
A P-TECH school relies on developing and sustaining healthy partnerships. Successful partnerships are characterized by shared responsibility and decision-making, close collaboration and honest communication.
This deep trust has given the Steering Committee the ability to successfully define its goals and responsibilities and the flexibility to quickly address gaps as they arise.
You have to find that rare instructor who has both – the expertise and the teaching ability.
We have to help students … hone the problem-solving mindset that will enable them to make the leap easily to jobs that do not exist yet.
P-TECH is about promise, but it’s also about expectation.
When ambition meets opportunity.
P-TECH is a global education model that offers students all over the world the opportunity to develop skills and competencies that will translate directly to competitive careers. Learn more about our schools and our students below.
