about the training

The Partnerships in Industry and Education (PIE) Innovation Center is a planned regional educational facility that will address the growing need to better prepare students for postsecondary careers and workforce opportunities. This unprecedented innovative Center, the first of its kind in Tennessee, will be located in the former American Uniform plant on Parker Street in Cleveland, TN. By having business, industry, secondary/postsecondary educational opportunities, and nonprofit services under one roof, students will be provided with the tools, education, and life skills needed to succeed.

Partnerships with TCAT-Athens, Cleveland State Community College, and Chattanooga State Technical Community College will provide students with dual credit, dual enrollment, industry certification, and a seamless transition into programming.

The PIE Innovation Center’s VISION will create an intensive, strategic student experience through collaboration with business, industry, and nonprofit organizations. This educational experience will give students a vision for their future through embedded work-based learning and experiential learning in STEM, changing learning pathways, and promoting design thinking.
