One of the most common characteristics associated with quality programs in Career and Technical Education (CTE) is their link with local business, industry, and the community. Local advisory committees are, in many cases, the most effective way to develop and strengthen such partnerships. Local advisory committees are designed to increase the participation of the public in local career and technical education programs and to provide greater cooperation between career and technical education and the private sector in:
- Preparing individuals for employment and entrepreneurship
- Promoting quality career and technical education
- Making career and technical education more responsive to, and reflective of, both the labor market and business/industry
