Workforce & Education
Dedication Promotes Success.
Technical education and dual enrollment and articulation agreements with nearby higher education institutions play a significant role in workforce development. Community programs, grants, industrial certification and nearby university programs add to the growth of a modern workforce.
Tennessee’s innovative workforce partnerships and education reform are developing qualified candidates for skills in high demand. Tennessee is leading the way in education reform by increasing the number of Tennesseans with college degrees or certifications through the Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect. As the first state in the country with these initiatives, Tennessee promises employers the support of highly skilled workers.
