The following is a press release from North Shore Community College:

Need to train, retrain or develop your staff? Come learn how to access the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund for up to $250,000 at an informational seminar at North Shore Community College (NSCC), Thursday, February 16, 8-10 a.m.

The session, which is free and includes continental breakfast, will be led by Michael Corcoran, Operations Supervisor for the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Program, and Rob Duncan, Program Specialist at Commonwealth Corporation. The event is co-sponsored by: NSCC's Institute for Corporate Training and Technology (ICTT), North Shore Chamber of Commerce, North Shore Workforce Investment Board, Commonwealth Corporation and the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund.

In today’s rapidly changing economy, it is vital to keep the skills and abilities of the workforce cutting edge. Workforce training is key to: developing skills levels, increasing productivity, promoting job growth, reducing hiring costs and improving morale.

NSCC’s ICCT has an impressive track record of helping companies secure MA Workforce Training Funds.  Since the program began, ICTT has worked with approximately 50 North Shore companies on submitting, obtaining and implementing workforce training grants totaling nearly $1 million.

NSCC’s ICTT works with businesses to design and deliver customized workforce development and training to meet strategic goals where, when and how desired. “We hope this information session will raise awareness on the North Shore of the considerable resources available and give people a roadmap on how to access and utilize them. The state is eager for more companies to know about and take advantage of this program,” said Dianne Palter Gill, NSCC Dean of Corporate & Community Education.

The program speaks directly to the Governor’s recent call during his State of the State address for community colleges to play a more active role in state workforce training.

The event will be held at 100 Cummings Center, Suite 121E, 181 Elliott Street, Beverly. There is no cost to attend but registration by February 15 is required at http://corporate.northshore.edu/workshops/.
