Employer Talent Pipeline

Delta College, Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance and Mid Michigan Community College have combined efforts to create the Employer Talent Pipeline (ETP). Through student work experience and training, our goal is to develop a STEM based workforce to meet the needs of employers in the region.

The Employer Talent Pipeline is a direct result of the Great Lakes Bay Region STEM Impact Initiative. Because of Delta's strong connections to the business community, we are a natural link to provide the workforce pipeline of tomorrow. The initiative is sponsored by The Dow Chemical Company, Delta College and Mid Michigan Community College.

Develop STEM skills

Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) allows your business to use local, research-based, up-to-date information on the skills needed to perform the job. It can also be used as a tool for employee development and to describe job operations, processes and systems to meet quality requirements. Identify skills and behaviors necessary to complete tasks and provide on-the-job training or update job descriptions. Learn more about occupational analysis (DACUM) for your business and see an example of a DACUM for Registered Nurse (RN).
