This training will bring together workforce development, economic development, and education leaders from both state- and local/regional levels to gain a solid foundation in the Next Gen Sector Partnership model, including:

  • What Next Gen Sector Partnerships are, what they achieve, how they're different and why they matter in building stronger regional economies and education and training systems;

  • The step-by-step process of building strong, sustainable Next Gen Partnerships;

  • Practical tools, tips and resources to prepare you to successfully launch.

This training is an ideal opportunity to connect with peers from across the country and learn from national expert, Lindsey Woolsey, on what it takes to build sustainable, industry-driven partnerships. 

At this time, our workshops are only open to practitioners in the field due to space and capacity constraints. If you are a consultant or advisor on sector partnerships, please feel free to contact us directly to learn more about the Next Gen model at
