connections for students while building seamless transitions to college. Dual enrollment,
educator networks and annual student experiences are just a few of the strategic efforts
College and Career Connections
The Strategic Partnerships and Workforce Development annually hosts The Ultimate College
and Career Connection and CTE Day. The purpose of these events is for students to
gain relevant career skills, network and to discover career pathway options available
after they graduate high school. The “College and Career Connection” Event brings
a highly engaging keynote speaker, employer/student panel discussion experience, mock
interview training sessions, and a career education simulation experience for students.
Engaging panel sessions highlight the Skyline College Promise Scholars program and
speakers from a variety of industries such as Cisco Systems, SAP Corporation, California
Pacific Medical Center, Genentech, Marriott, iQ360 Inc, and KRNV just to name a few.
Additionally, students engage in hands-on activities through simulations that highlight
career focused programs at Skyline College
Leadership in Strategic Partnerships and Workforce Development brings together teachers,
staff and administration across San Mateo County high schools in specific sectors
to explore ways to partner, collaborate and align curriculum and services in ways
that build increased opportunities for students while building strong relationships
across partner pathway programming.
