 Workforce Solutions By IndustryEducation


Education Industry Workgroup Creating the Future Workforce

In the thirteen county region serviced by Workforce Solutions Houston, over 150,000 people are employed through a public or charter school district.  Add to these numbers the many external services required by schools, one can easily see the large impact education as an industry has on the local workforce.

In addition to teachers and school leaders, districts employ a wide variety of personnel including accountants, lawyers, nurses, skilled trade workers and staff managers.  Even amid the current budget climate, the demand for school district personnel remains as population increases throughout the region. 
Because of the continual need for a skilled workforce in the education sector, Workforce Solutions has allocated resources to assist employers in the industry with ongoing workforce needs.

Education Industry Workgroup

In its current capacity, Workforce Solutions Houston has developed a regional committee of school district leaders to analyze the industry needs and direct energy to these needs. Teacher quality and development, improving hiring practices, and developing a regional framework for recruiting, hiring, and maintaining a skilled workforce round out the objectives for this committee.
