In close partnership with the Kentucky Cabinet for Education and Workforce Development, Kentucky was selected as one of the three states in the nation to pilot a statewide implementation of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s program, Talent Pipeline Management (TPM)®. TPM is an employer-led and demand-driven approach for businesses to create and manage talent ‘supply chains’ by projecting talent needs and aligning those with education and workforce development systems.
Bus to Business® is a statewide initiative focused on connecting students with employers. The goal of the program is to show students what career pathways are in their own communities. These students will be given the opportunity to tour businesses, complete hands-on work-based learning activities, and speak directly with employers about career pathways available in their organizations.
