Bay Region: Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism

Closing the Skills Gap

We're committed to delivering relevant and innovative education and training that specifically addresses the needs of industry, prepares students for success    and helps advance California’s economy.


A Clear Opportunity

The Retail, Hospitality and Tourism (RHT) sectors employ over 3 million people in California and are    expected to add an additional 347,000 jobs by 2017. This rapid growth combined with the large number of workers already employed in these sectors, creates an opportunity for the California    Community Colleges to provide diverse educational pathways that develop skilled candidates fully prepared to fill open jobs in the RHT industry.


Pathway to Success

 We are working with business and industry, trade organizations, and economic development agencies to advance, align and adjust programs and create a pipeline of skilled workers ready to grow in a career in the retail, hospitality and tourism sector. Through enhanced partnerships and programs, we are committed to the following:

  • Upgrade Onsite Workforce Skills Instruction     
  • Enhance Job Retention, Career Readiness and Career Advancement    
  • Improve Productivity through Basic Workforce Skills Training
