For point of view, some important truths about California About 33 million individuals live in California in a few ethnic gatherings, none that are a greater part About 2.9 million individuals go to junior college either low maintenance or full-time. Packing these participants into full-time equal understudies yields a check of 1.5 million full-time proportionate (FTE) understudies. (Take note of that 2.9 million individuals parallels or surpasses the number of inhabitants in 19 distinct states in the U.S., as indicated by 2000 evaluation information.)

Access to Higher Education Three state-supported organizations of advanced education in California: 10 Universities of California (research transcendent) 23 California State Universities (instructing and instructor preparing concentrated, less research) and 110 CCCs and their satellite grounds. (7% of U.S. Junior colleges) Almost every Californian can drive to a close-by junior college or one of its satellite grounds. Advanced education is open

Slide 18

Informing both businesses and potential students know this biotech training and preparing is accessible Funding for costly hardware – the move of stipends and gifts Well-prepared educators – particularly knowing how "within" of a biotech organization truly works Skills the business needs are really being shown Workplace competency aptitudes ("delicate" abilities) Knowing where the occupations are Knowing where the occupations will be Issues, issues and problems

Slide 19

Dichotomies Motivations "the main issue" in industry The instructional mode in training Skill sets and training Learn the essentials math (frequently including insights), science, science, different sciences Have the genuine hands-on abilities for mechanical setting Education level/degrees Belief that a four year college education is the base training to "do well" in biotech Belief that exclusive 18-20 year-olds sans degrees go to CCCs

Slide 20

How to [Continually] Determine Desired Employee Competencies What bio-related industry(ies) are in our general vicinity? What expertise sets do they require? What logical comprehension do they require that bolster the aptitudes? How soon?

Slide 21

What Do We Need to Meet the Industry\'s Desired Competencies? Do we have the assets, offices and work force to address these issues? If not, would we be able to create them? Who are our accomplices? What is/are their role(s)? Who will make and keep up these organizations?

Slide 22
