    This report examines state and local partnerships with business and industry as a means for training low-wage workers and helping them advance. For this analysis, the authors examined partnerships that: (1) Involve an investment of public funds and are managed by a public sector institution; (2) Give business a lead role in identifying job training needs and paths to job advancement, often for their own employees; and (3) Provide job training through public, non-profit, and for-profit institutions, sometimes at the worksite. The lessons presented in this paper are designed to assist policymakers in developing new initiatives, as well to inform program administrators and managers of existing programs.
