The Iowa Tech Prep initiative is federally funded through the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990, which requires a cooperative effort between secondary and post-secondary institutions. Tech Prep involves joint faculty development of applied and integrated academic and technical instruction. Programs encompass the education in high school through the associate degree level of post secondary education or an apprenticeship in a career field. . In Iowa, 15 Tech Prep consortia are geographically co-located with the community college system. A consortium includes all school districts, the community college, the area education agency, many businesses and industries in the specific region, the regional Workforce Development office, and many four-year colleges and universities in the geographic area.
