ETA Competency Models Inform United Way Partnership’s Initiatives to Address Employer Workforce Needs

PCW was cited as an exemplary regional partnership in Vice President Biden’s report “Ready to Work: Job-Driven Training and American Opportunity.” As part of this initiative, PCW has developed industry competency models derived from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) Commercial and Industrial Construction and Advanced Manufacturing Competency Models to support its Work Readiness Collaborative to help targeted individuals, such as ex-offenders and welfare recipients, get started on a career pathway.
