What Need Does This Proposal Address?

Region Nine does not have a collaborative effort to provide job development and placement for students within the region. This proposal provides for a job developer at each of the 13 colleges and 2 regional job developers for Region Nine. These individuals would be primarily responsible for seeking out jobs in their respective areas for students graduating from CTE programs. The Regional Job developers would work with college/district job developers to identify jobs that may be available in areas where the college does not offer the CTE program, but it is offered at one of the other Region Nine colleges. The job developers would then seek students with the identified industry skills to match the job opening and procure interviews or job placement with the companies identified. This meets one of the metrics of the Strong Workforce dollars in that it increases the number of students who are placed in jobs that are within their CTE Certificate/AA degree skill set.

 

How Does This Proposal Meet the Needs of Your Region's Labor Market?

There continue to be gaps between labor market demand and connecting qualified students to employers in order to meet the demand.

 

How Does This Proposal Address the Identified Needs?

Fund job development and placement coordinators at the region's colleges who will identify jobs available to CTE students and conduct and coordinate job fairs and employability workshops. These college coordinators would also coordinate and collaborate with other regional college job placement coordinators and placement counselors on a regional level to identify jobs outside of the scope of local CTE certificates and degrees and local geographic employment regions.

 

How Does This proposal Address the Priorities Established by Your Region?

Job development and employment placement was identified as a significant gap during regional SWP planning, including the need for regional approach to this activity.
