Summer gears down while WIOA work is underway; Special WIOA WorkforceGPS Newsletter next month!

Happy August!

As summer begins to wind down and many of you squeeze in final vacations, the WIOA work continues to heat up (just like the weather did the past few weeks). Next month, instead of our regular September issue, we are assembling a special edition of the WorkforceGPS newsletter completely dedicated to WIOA Final Rules implementation and technical assistance--get excited!

In the meantime, though, we encourage you to use WorkforceGPS to continue to help you navigate to success.

Specifically, you may start with the Resource Library, which is a great place for finding excellent resources—sortable by six different categories, including over a 100 activities. Additionally, our Community of Practice Discussions allow you to access the brain power of your colleagues from all across the United States and its territories; if you haven't already joined a Community, sign up today, so you can take advantage of membership. And finally, even though we have done our best to make WorkforceGPS easy to use, remember that you can always search for whatever you are looking for or get assistance when you need it.

If you missed hearing from us in June and July, you can always access the newsletter archives here.

  • Eligible Training Provider Sponsor Fact Sheet: This fact sheet is a great resource for Registered Apprenticeship sponsors interested in joining the WIOA Eligible Training Provider List in their state or region.
  • New Sectors Skill Building Materials: Sector strategies are regional, industry-focused approaches to building skilled workforces and are among the most effective ways to align public and private resources to address the talent needs of employers. While the approach is not new, there is a growing body of evidence showing that sector strategies can simultaneously improve employment opportunities for job seekers and the competitiveness of industries.
