League features training model

Central Lakes College and the Rural MN CEP Work Force Center are featured in the latest League for Innovation electronic newsletter in a lead feature entitled "Collaborating for Success: A Dislocated Worker Training Model." In response to the economic downturn and growing number of dislocated workers, Central Lakes College convened a planning group of workforce and economic development agencies. The group identified ways to help dislocated workers gain access to full-time academic and short-term training programs. Industry experts were involved in all aspects of the project, from designing and developing the curriculum to serving as adjunct faculty. Learn how effective teamwork and a strong spirit of collaboration made this award-winning model possible in this month's issue of Innovation Showcase. See it at
