The California Community Colleges Workforce and Economic Development program (WED program) helps students, incumbent workers, business partners and industries develop skilled competencies in critical industry sectors. As a source for developing and implementing training and curriculum, the WED program is instrumental in helping the community colleges respond to markets in a rapid and flexible manner. This year's annual report to the Legislature highlights the continued relevance and support of the colleges to play an integral role in helping California build its workforce despite budget cuts and stagnant economic growth: (1) 1,266 people received jobs; (2) 17,422 jobs retained; (3) 3,382 businesses served; (4) 16,750 industry certifications; (5) 639 internships; and (6) 172 apprenticeships. Success stories from each of the strategic priority areas are provided to showcase how the regional centers work well with their partners. Statewide Strategic Priority Initiatives are appended.
