Industry Partnerships

The Career and Technical Education Division at the New York City Department of Education manages strategic partnerships between schools and corporations across eight career clusters including Information Technology, Engineering Architecture and Robotics, Automotive and Transportation, Healthcare, Construction and Sustainability, Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Tourism, Media Technology and Design, Business and Finance. The Career and Technical Education (CTE) team supports over 200 programs within high schools located across all five boroughs which training upwards of 60,000 students per year.

The multi-stakeholder model used to manage industry engagement allows small to medium-sized enterprises and large corporations to serve in a high-level advisory capacity around policy, strategy, and workforce development. Corporations also directly engage schools by reviewing curricula and credentialing models, providing internships, recruiting mentors, training teachers, hosting competitions, and offering college scholarships.

NYC Industry Partners are invited to offer the following opportunities through our NYC CTE Industry Scholars Program:
