Overview

Kentucky's education system is geared to provide the future workforce for advanced manufacturing and the service and technology industries.  From our K-12 curriculum through post secondary education providers, Kentucky is developing a STEM based workforce to provide the necessary skillsets for the ever changing economy.

Education and Workforce Partnership Efforts

Project Lead The Way offers a different approach to learning and teaching. Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum, PLTW gives students in kindergarten through high school a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning. Students are exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through three different K-12 Pathways; Biomedical Science, Computer Science, and Engineering. PLTW’s mission is to prepare students for the global economy. EKPC working with PLTW is creating the future workforce for high skilled – high wage jobs in the Commonwealth.
