NC Community Colleges Launch NCReady4Work
Learning Summits Focused on Identifying Best Practices and Barriers in Workforce Development
RALEIGH – Workforce plays a key role in the location, retention and global competitiveness of businesses in 2014. The North Carolina Community College System is launching a strategic planning initiative focused on ensuring North Carolina’s workforce is number one in the nation. The state’s community colleges are designated in North Carolina General Statutes (N.C.G.S. §115D-1) as, “…the primary lead agency for delivering workforce development training…” However, workforce efforts in the state involve many partners. In an effort to integrate those partners into NCReady4Work, the North Carolina Community College System is convening community colleges and workforce partners for a series of learning summits, held across the state, to discuss best practices and challenges, and to identify strategies to bring North Carolina’s workforce development into alignment, resulting in increased responsiveness, better engagement and ultimately greater accountability to stakeholders.
