Bevill State Community College hosted a Workforce Solutions Summit on Tuesday, July 24, in Bevill Auditorium on the Hamilton Campus. The College’s Workforce Solutions Department invited the local business/industry community and other stakeholders to meet our workforce team, hear about opportunities to partner, and discuss our workforce relationships.
“Bevill State’s Workforce Solutions Department covers three regions, including 7 counties, and over 4,600 square miles. We have been reaching out to business and industry stakeholders throughout our service area. With the renewed interest in workforce development, this summit is a great opportunity to learn about the resources that are available through the College. We offer services, training, and funding resources that can assist business and help Hamilton grow and succeed. Having grown up in Hamilton and spent much of my life there, I am especially interested in seeing my hometown develop into a thriving and vibrant economy. Hamilton has so much to offer and an abundance of resources for success,” stated Amanda Clement-Tice, Workforce Specialist for Bevill State Community College.
The BSCC Workforce Solutions Department works closely with business and industry to develop workforce education and customized training for business and industry. Topics discussed during the July 24 Workforce Solutions Summit included Job Profiling, Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Certifications, Ready to Work, Customized Industry Training, and Existing Industry Training Program (EITP).
“The objective of this meeting was to introduce the BSCC Workforce Division, build relationships, and to find out how we can better serve the local business community. I believe this summit was a success and a positive step toward fostering robust partnerships and open communication in this area,” said Dr. Kim Ennis, President of Bevill State.
