“The Employer Engagement Tool Kit is one of the most comprehensive and practical guides to help schools and teachers work with employers that I have seen to date. I have done extensive research to try to help my teachers work with their business and industry partners in an effective way that benefits both parties. This publication makes it clear that the partnership must include commitment from everyone involved to strengthen a program – a true partnership in every aspect. How refreshing! Included are the forms to help teachers and businesses achieve that community of purpose. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Just act on the suggestions in this tool kit and you can’t go wrong! Great job!”
