The Role of Workforce Development Councils in Washington

The federal Workforce Investment Act requires that a local strategic plan be developed and maintained by every Workforce Development Council in the nation. Washington State Law requires that local plans be consistent with Washington's latest strategic plan for workforce development, High Skills, High Wages.

These plans:

  1. Define workforce development services that are in place.

  2. Address identified skills gaps experienced by area employers.

  3. Tailor strategies to meet the needs of local economies.

  4. Create a meaningful vision for the entire workforce development system so customers are served efficiently with satisfactory results.
