In order to meet the growing need for businesses to hire and train skilled workers, we are partnering with the regional business and industry leaders to develop Industry Clusters. These clusters put the most influential people in their respective fields together in the same room to discuss ways to provide information on how to properly train and equip potential employees with skills that are prerequisites in being successful within each industry. Our Industry Clusters are an invaluable resource to our region in being sure we are providing opportunities to our citizens that are specific to the jobs and career to our communities.
The success of our workforce model is based on cluster engagement and direction. Even though our model is industry driven we still have a tremendous engagement with our education partners and service providers who are also engaged at all levels.
We are currently developing several clusters which meet regularly to focus on employment and training needs in the region. As needs are accessed, the clusters may form a taskforce to work on a particular project or initiative. If you would like to be involved on the front lines of workforce development then the industry sector clusters is where you need to engage. For more information on upcoming cluster meetings and to get involved, call us at (334) 792-5138
