Additional Information

RetailReadyCA is a public-private collaboration between California Community Colleges and leading retailers focused on developing the next generation of skilled workers for the retail sector in California.


Students and workers gain certificates, credentials and skills through California Community Colleges career technical education programs coupled with experiential learning with retailers that prepare them for the new world of retail jobs.


WE RECOGNIZE THE CHANGES HAPPENING IN THE RETAIL SECTOR AND THE WORLD OF WORK IN GENERAL.   IT IS OUR GOAL TO CREATE A WORKFORCE READY TO THRIVE IN THE RETAIL INDUSTRY.


We pair retailers and community colleges together to offer opportunities for our students to gain workplace readiness, career exploration and job shadowing opportunities.


HOW IT WORKS:


  1. We work primarily with colleges offering the The Retail Management Certificate or  The IT Technician Pathway (Retail Customer Support)
  2. An interested college or retailer contacts their regional CaliforniaRHT representative.
  3. The CaliforniaRHT representative matches a retailer and college and assists in creating an experiential learning and job shadowing event(s).

RetailReadyCA is a California Community College initiative managed by the California Retail, Hospitality initiative.

RetailReadyCA is an initiative of the California Community College System focused on providing students with the job ready skills they will need to compete and succeed in the ever changing retail industry.
