  • Document any constraints to program growth (e.g., student interest, instructor availability, classroom space, lab/instructional equipment, etc.)
  • Analyze capacity constraints and prioritize regional programmatic needs

2.2.2. Identify available funding sources to support program expansion and work with partners to secure this funding

  • Advocate for additional public funds where appropriate
  • Create partnerships or consortia to seek grants to fund program expansion
  • Facilitate the creation of partnerships with employers to increase employer involvement in training (e.g., donated equipment, instructor-on-loan, work-based learning) and in funding additional capacity
