Healthcare Pathway Approved for Edgecombe
The Turning Point Workforce Development Board has approved local implementation of a healthcare career pathway for Edgecombe County students.
The healthcare pathway is a collaborative initiative between Edgecombe County Public Schools, Edgecombe Community College, and local agencies to build education tracks that not only fit the requirements of education but also meet local workforce needs.
In addition, a pathway has been developed specifically for adult learners that provides pathway entry options and directions for enrolling through NC Works.
“Approval of local implementation of a healthcare career pathway signifies that we are all on the same page in terms of what the future workforce needs may be and how future workers can best prepare,” explains Dr. Greg McLeod, president of ECC.
