Description

For job-seekers, TWC collaborates with a wide variety of stakeholders(employers, community colleges, organized labor and community-based organizations) to bundle and sequence services that moves individuals toward career readiness in specific industry sectors. Career readiness involves three major skill areas:

  1. Core academic skills, and the ability to apply those skills in concrete situations as they relate to the workplace and home;
  2. Employability skills, particularly critical thinking and workplace norms; and
  3. Technical, job-specific skills related to a specific career pathway.

For employers, TWC’s goal is to provide workers that are proficient in all three areas described above.
