Healthcare is one of the state's largest sectors and one of the few with continuing growth during the recessions. The sector suffers from persistent vacancies in a range of occupations. The most urgent skills gaps are in jobs requiring at least a two year college degree yet the path to higher education is too long and slow for many workers.
Goals of this initiative.
Enroll and graduate participants from healthcare certificate programs. Place graduates of those programs in jobs. Complete design work aimed to improve alignment and acceleration of healthcare education and training pathways that lead to Associate's degrees. Develop sustainable partnerships among employers, post-secondary institutions, the workforce development system, and community based organizations that will continue beyond the life of the grant.
