Roanoke-Chowan Community College Collaborates with Workforce Development Leaders to Align Business Needs with Training Opportunities.


October 1, 2014 — Dr. Scott Rawls, president of the North Carolina Community College System, addressed local business leaders, community college and public school representatives, and workforce development leaders at the Align4NCWorks Learning Summit co-hosted by Roanoke-Chowan Community College and College of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City. Rawls explained, “This is the 19th of 22 Align4NCWorks sessions held across the state.  The goal of Align4NCWorks Learning Summits is to bring together in partnership an integrated strategy for workforce development to ensure that North Carolina’s workforce is number one in the nation.  The learning summits allow our community colleges to present best practices and identify workforce challenges and issues.”

The best practice in workforce development presented by Public Roanoke-Chowan Community College highlighted its collaborative partnership with NUCOR and Hertford County EMS.  Since 2009, R-CCC has provided EMT Basic Training to 50 NUCOR team members.  NUCOR Environmental Manager Terry Hairston explained how the safety of team members is NUCOR’s top priority.  “Because we are located in a rural area, 10 miles from the closest EMS station, we found it important to prepare our team members to respond if an emergency situation should arise.  We have the best people who want to help others.  Offering the EMT Basic class gives our team members the knowledge and skills to assist others, and these team members have become our best safety advocates in the plant.”  R-CCC is a leader in providing high quality Health and Public Safety courses.  EMT courses are also taught on the R-CCC campus in addition to intermediate and paramedic courses and CPR/First Aid courses. 

According to Dr. Rawls, “Forty percent of wage earners in North Carolina have been a North Carolina Community College student within the past 10 years.”  Community colleges will continue to be a critical partner in developing a qualified work force.  To help align workforce training available at R-CCC with local business needs, R-CCC is working with local workforce development leaders on Governor McCrory’s “1,000 in 100” listening tour.  The governor has requested local workforce development leaders to meet with 10 businesses within each of the 100 North Carolina counties within 100 days.  The goal is to identify business needs and partner together to offer short-term solution and long-term strategies for meeting workforce development needs.
