Notice is hereby given that a draft of the 2017-2020 Northern Rural Training and Employment Consortium (NoRTEC) Workforce Development Board Regional and Local Plans is now available for review and public comments for a period of 30 days beginning February 10, 2017, as required by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014.


The NoRTEC Draft Four-Year Regional Plan 2017-2020 describes the workforce development needs of an eleven-county area, which includes, Butte, Del Norte, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Sierra, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, and Trinity Counties. This regional plan articulates the Region’s efforts to align education and training provider services with regional industry sector needs as required under the WIOA.


The NoRTEC Draft Four-Year Local Plan 2017-2020 reflects the current and future strategies that the WDB will use to address the continuing innovation of the workforce system and creation of a customer- centered system: where the needs of business and workers drive workforce solutions; where the America’s Job Centers of California provide excellent customer service to all jobseekers and businesses; and where the workforce system supports strong regional economies, as well as alignment with State and local priorities, and the NoRTEC Regional Planning Unit’s efforts to align education and training provider services with regional industry sector needs.
