Workforce Development is designed to provide education and training to meet the needs of business and industry, to administer customer-driven assessment and training to attract new businesses to our region, to respond to permanent closures and layoffs, and to provide existing businesses with the necessary training for expansion. This unit forecasts industry growth by leading the business community in identifying and training for emerging workforce trends and technologies. Delgado’s Workforce Development approach allows employers to retrain, upgrade, and attract skilled workers to our region.
