PISCATAWAY — More than 250 members of the Advisory Committees of the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools and Adult Technical Schools will gather at 6 p.m. April 25 on the Piscataway Campus for the annual Advisory Committee dinner and meeting.
District administrators and instructors will meet with the Advisory Committees, which are composed of representatives of business and industry who evaluate the district’s career programs and curriculum.
Middlesex County College will be honored at the dinner with the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools’ 2011-2012 Business Partnership Recognition Program Award. The award, sponsored by the New Jersey Council of County Vocational-Technical Schools, recognizes business partners for commitment to the county vocational schools and their students.
The college is being recognized for its long-standing collaboration with MCVTS in making college credits available and accessible to high school students in Middlesex County.
The MCVTS Advisory Committees provide invaluable guidance in identifying and expanding the use of new technologies, comparing career curriculum with the skills needed for future occupations and advising on labor market trends. The contributions and commitment of program committees is reflected in the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools’ most recent placement report, which showed that 80 percent of the 2011 graduates who were available for employment found work in the career area for which they were trained.
