Teaching and Training Tomorrow’s Workforce

A skilled workforce is the engine that keeps business running. Building that engine begins early on with career pathways. The Levy County School Board has done just that with multiple academies and courses in such areas as healthcare,  construction, programming and agriculture.

Additionally, numerous colleges and universities are in or around our communities, including the University of Florida, College of Central Florida’s Levy campus, Marion Technical College, and the Withlacoochee Technical College.

Those pathways continue through graduation, with CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion joining the journey through a variety of recruitment, hiring and training services. This video describes the variety of no-fee business services they offer:

Along with those services, they offer training incentives for employers, which can save thousands of dollars while upskilling workers through tailor-made programs. You can click here to download the services fact sheet so you have it for future reference.
