Economic and workforce development l.jpg

Economic and Workforce Development

The Economic Development Program (EDP) was established in 1991, and in 1996 economic development became one of the primary missions of the California Community Colleges. California Education Code Part 52, Section 88500 outlines the mission of the economic and workforce development program;

  • (a) To advance California's economic growth and global competitiveness through high quality education and services …….

  • (b) To maximize and leverage the resources of the California Community Colleges ……

  • (c) To work with representatives of business, labor, and professional trade associations …. for assisting incumbent workers.

  • (d) To collaborate with other state and local agencies, including partners under the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998.

  • (i) To develop strategic public and private sector partnerships.

The partners l.jpg

The Partners

  • An active manufacturers consortium that meets monthly

  • The San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board

  • Chaffey Community College District and the San Bernardino Community College District

Benefits to collaboration l.jpg

Benefits to collaboration

  • Impractical to do things individually

  • We are not subject experts in all disciplines

  • The scope of a project extends beyond neat community college district boundaries.

  • The cost is beyond the means of any one entity, especially if the training required is expensive and capital intensive.

  • Momentum, collectively we can seek additional funding for separate though related projects (recently received an IDRC grant).

  • Better to have a small piece of a big pie than a big piece of a no pie.

The need for craft training l.jpg


  • More technical, sophisticated equipment

  • Retirement of many senior craft personnel

  • Leaner organizations – Lack of specialists – Cross Training

  • Loss of apprenticeship type training programs

  • Loss of craft oriented vocational educational programs

  • Nationwide recruiting for Electricians

    (primarily Navy)

Why customized craft training l.jpg


  • Versus Existing College Programs

    • College programs generally too long

    • College schedules didn’t mix well with work schedules

    • College curricula didn’t closely match our needs

  • Versus Existing Private Craft Training

    • Curricula didn’t always match our needs

    • Class schedules weren’t always convenient (location)

    • Classes were expensive

Slide9 l.jpg


  • Previous demonstration project in 2001/2002

  • College facilities and equipment available, with known good instructors and curricula – also colleges were flexible

  • Willingness of the local colleges and county government to be active partners in this effort – familiarity with major players

  • With multiple companies and customized training, the ETP application process would be time consuming, and employee tracking difficult

  • Under this process, the tracking responsibilities and paperwork would fall mostly to the county government and the colleges

Company college and county government efforts needed to make this happen l.jpg


  • Equipment selection – Trip to Kentucky & Indiana (companies, colleges, and county government) to evaluate equipment and similar training programs (2001)

  • Mechanical & Electrical Committee meetings (companies and colleges) to customize curricula (2001)

  • Monthly Manufacturing Council Meetings (starting Nov. 2005)

    • Initially six manufacturing companies

    • Chaffey College

    • San Bernardino Valley College

    • Workforce Development Department, San Bernardino County

  • Workforce Investment Board Application (March, 2006)

The need for a manufacturing council l.jpg


  • Communication and coordination on craft programs (between companies, colleges, and county government)

    • Electrical program (at Chaffey College; program started May 2006)

    • Mechanical program (at San Bernardino Valley College; program started June 2006)

  • Networking for development of other programs to help manufacturing companies

  • Keeping focus – Not trying to do too much

  • Recruitment of other companies to join the Manufacturing Council
