Industry Initiatives

In the REB’s Strategic Plan, strategic goals in four key areas to build the overall quality of our workforce are set forth. One of those is to “Improve Education and Employability Skills of Adults for Quality Careers” in which we commit to taking a leadership role in integrating workforce development with initiatives that support business growth and success, and that enhance the skills of new/incumbent workers, leading to family economic self-sufficiency.

One way to achieve that goal is to promote sectoral training initiatives in high growth industries which utilize a career ladder approach to provide upgraded skills, increased salary and career advancement for new/incumbent workers.

Two priority clusters the REB targeted in our strategic plan for sectoral training are in healthcare and nursing and advanced precision manufacturing and you can click on these links to learn more.

In addition, we have  developed a Financial Services and Business Services Workforce Collaborative to address the labor force needs of these industries and a new IT regional collaborative.
