Workforce Development

Workforce development is a broadly used term that refers to the education, training and development of skilled workers. Workforce development can be initiated and supported on an organizational, local, and/or national level to promote and strengthen the skills and knowledge that are essential in creating a competent workforce. Workforce development is often viewed as one of the key purposes and objectives of community colleges, although there are many private enterprises involved in workforce development activities.
