If you are you a CTE faculty member who has been tasked with developing a new CTE certificate or degree (program) for your college, you will need to secure regional consortium recommendation from the LA/OC Consortium before you submit your program approval documents to the State Chancellor’s Office for formal approval (chaptering).
Your college CTE Dean can advise you on the regional recommendation process and your college’s own curriculum approval process. You should also consult your college’s curriculum committee chair (or designee) early in the development process.
The LA/OC Consortium is comprised of the 28 community colleges in Los Angeles and Orange County Region. The California Community College Chancellor’s Office requires that all requests for new CTE program approvals include a recommendation from the “appropriate CTE Regional Consortium” (PCAH 6th Edition, page 17). This recommendation ensures program offerings meet regional labor market needs and do not unnecessarily duplicate programs.
The LAOCRC vested responsibility for recommending new programs, program revisions, and other program matters with its College Resource Leadership Council composed of Voting Members. Read the LAOCRC Bylaws (Link coming soon).
Colleges seeking regional recommendation must submit their request online at RegionalCTE.org. The process is described on the next tab, "Process".
The PCAH 6th Edition (page 86) states: “Pursuant to Education Code section 78015 Labor Market Information (LMI) data is specifically required for all new CTE program proposals, where available. Current LMI and analysis, or other comparable information, must show that jobs are available for program completers within the local service area of the individual college and/or that job enhancement or promotion justifies the proposed curriculum.”
The LAOCRC relies on consistent LMI data provided by the region’s COE in order to make a recommendation for a program.
Complete and submit the Program Application using RegionalCTE.org website. Please click on calendar below for more information and submission deadlines.
The region is committed to review and act on all requests for regional recommendation within 30 days, provided the request is complete at the time it is submitted. The CRLC members hold regular monthly meetings between September and June. Meeting dates can be found on the LAOCRC website under Meetings.
