Research focusing on community college leadership programs and the needs of workforce development personnel shows that the primary knowledge and skills needed by professionals in the field include collaboration, teaching, community college context, effects of globalization, data usage, and skills related to leadership and team work. Program faculty and staff in a master of science degree in a Workforce Education Leadership program researched the needs of workforce development personnel. They also met with community college workforce development and industry personnel from five community college districts to review the program curriculum. Key conclusions included the value of offering all courses online and on a regular basis, offering appropriate coursework, and including courses that would allow for the discussion of changing trends, problem-based projects, and industry experiences.
