These activities include career pathway programs that assist individuals in transitioning to employment after training is provided, open enrollment courses (offered to the general public) that allow employees or potential employees to upgrade their skills, and customized training, which provides the opportunity for employers to develop a course of study for employees that meets specific training needs.
Fiscal Year 2017 marked the second year of VCCS’s strategic plan, Complete 2021, which focuses on tripling the number of credentials earned by community college students.
