CareerSource Florida advances strategic policies that connect employers with qualified, skilled talent and Floridians with employment and career development opportunities. These strategic policies are high-level principles or directional statements that inform or clarify federal and state legislative policy or workforce system strategies. Strategic policies direct decision-making at the program level and may result in the development of administrative policies.
Sector strategies are regional, industry-focused approaches to building a skilled workforce and are one of the most effective ways to align public and private resources to address the talent needs of employers. While the approach is not new, there is increasing evidence showing that sector strategies can simultaneously improve employment opportunities for job seekers and the competitiveness of industries. At the heart of sector strategies are sector partnerships, sometimes referred to as industry partnerships, workforce collaboratives or regional skills alliances. These partnerships are led by businesses within a critical industry cluster working collaboratively with workforce development, education and training, economic development, labor and community organizations.
