Overview

The Strong Workforce Program legislation charges each of the state’s regional consortia with the task of engaging workforce development stakeholders in preparing and annually updating a regional plan.

The purpose of this planning process is to facilitate alignment of state funded education and workforce development services within and across participating agencies with the goal of providing pathways that:

  • Enable all Californians to acquire the education and training necessary to enter and advance to employment that pays livable wages

  • Meet the needs of California’s employers for well qualified candidates for in-demand jobs
