AMETLL Consortium Celebrates Successful Year
Cerritos College participated in the AMETLL Year-End Showcase at the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel recently. The showcase celebrated the accomplishments of the AMETLL Consortium.
The Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Linked Learning (AMETLL) Consortium was established in 2013, and seeks to establish a new workforce pipeline by working closely with industry partners and school districts to develop clear pathways, which begin in high school and continue through a bachelor's degree. By enrolling in articulated classes and completing college courses while in high school, students can finish college faster.
Since the beginning of the grant, Cerritos College has created 61 Project Lead the Way articulation agreements, and so far, 18 Lynwood high school students have earned a Cerritos College certificate of achievement in engineering technology before graduating from high school.
During the 2016-2017 academic year, 749 high school students received Cerritos College credit through the Credit by Examination process. Additionally, 580 students in the College’s Technology Division, including high school students, earned a nationally recognized industry certification.
