The mission of WCCC’s Division of Workforce and Professional Development is to work directly with businesses to meet their workforce training needs and to assist individuals to enter employment and advance in career pathways.  It builds upon strong partnerships with businesses and industry leaders, as well as workforce, economic, and community development organizations to determine occupational demand, identify core competencies, stimulate innovation, and promote technology immersion.  This work helps to build and evolve relevant and proactive institutional programming which leads to sustainable employment, upward mobility, family self-sufficiency, and a highly-skilled and ever evolving workforce.
