The McMinn County Economic Development Authority recently adopted a job skills promotional and training program launched in Cleveland in 2017 that is designed to encourage students to pursue manufacturing and technology jobs at local industries.
Known as “Your Skills. Your Future.”, the program offers a range of web and classroom resources to high school students, parents, adults and job seekers in partnership with Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT), Cleveland State Community College (CSCC), The University of Tennessee Center for Industrial Service (CIS) and the Tennessee Career Center.
Kathy Price, Executive Director of the McMinn County Economic Development Authority, will share workforce challenges in our region, and how the new program can address future growth and build a workforce for whatever businesses and industries need. The program will also include resources for those interested in information technology and health care careers.
The program builds on Tennessee’s “Drive to 55” campaign to get at least 55 percent of all adults in the state with at least a post-secondary certification for some type of skilled jobs by 2025.
