WORKFORCE TRAINING

One of the plum business assets in Vance County is Vance-Granville Community College. It’s part of North Carolina’s 58-campus, nationally recognized community college system, and offers customized skills training to new and expanding industries at little or no cost. North Carolina’s workforce development system is one of the most comprehensive in the nation. It connects employers and workers by managing recruitment efforts, employee screening and other critical assessments that are valuable in pre-employment evaluation.
 

NORTH CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE CUSTOMIZED TRAINING PROGRAM

North Carolina pioneered free, customized job training for companies new to the state, as well as resident companies experiencing job growth. The Customized Training Program is sponsored by the state’s community college network, and supports full-time production, technology support and direct customer service positions created in North Carolina. Services include training assessment, coursework design, training delivery and related instructional costs. The Customized Training Program works to support three key aspects of a company’s well being: job growth, technology investment and productivity enhancement.

Vance-Granville Community College administers the North Carolina Community College Customized Training Program. Training support is available for businesses and industries that demonstrate two or more of the following criteria: Making an appreciable capital investment; deploying new technology; creating jobs or expanding an existing workforce; enhancing the productivity and profitability of operations within the state; and enhancing the skills of employees.

Companies eligible for this program include manufacturers, technology-intensive operations such as information technology and life sciences; regional or national warehousing and distribution centers; customer support centers; air courier services; and national headquarters with operations outside North Carolina. Civil service employers that provide technical support to U.S. military installations in the state are also eligible to receive customized training assistance.
