Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology Linked Learning (AMETLL) Grant
The Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Linked Learning (AMETLL) Consortium was established 2013, and is comprised of educational partners committed to the principles of Linked Learning - an approach that energizes students through interdisciplinary curriculum, project-based learning, and the integration of Career Technical Education with traditional academic disciplines.
In 2014 the Consortium was awarded the California Careers Pathways Trust (CCPT) grant and pledged to address the significant workforce shortages in Los Angeles in the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Technology industries. The Consortium seeks to establish a new workforce pipeline for this industry cluster by working closely with industry partners and respective Unified School Districts to develop clear pathways, which begin in high school and continue through a Bachelor's Degree.
For the AMETLL Grant, Cerritos College collaborates with ABC USD, Downey USD, Lynwood USD, Norwalk-La Mirada USD, and Paramount USD. We offer Engineering to High School students through: College Tours, College Credit through Articulation Agreements, and Industry Certifications. These opportunities can provide High School students with resources to earn Cerritos College Credit while they are enrolled in High School.
