Consortium, a public-private
partnership, administers a five county system of workforce development
programs that prepare citizens for the workforce including those who are
facing economic disadvantage, job loss, and other barriers to employment.
Serving Beaufort, Bertie, Hertford, Martin and Pitt Counties, these
programs also provide a central point for businesses for listing jobs,
applicant screening and development of training systems. The Region Q
Workforce Development Board (WDB) develops policy and oversees these
Region Q provides high support training and
other services that result in increased employment and earnings, increased
educational and occupational skills and decreased welfare earnings. The
cornerstone of the programs is a system of JobLink Career Centers. These
Centers are part of a statewide network designed to improve the quality of
the workforce as well as the state's competitiveness in the global economy.
The Centers and the related Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs are
administered through the Mid-East Commission, a regional planning and
development commission established by state statute that provides leadership
in identifying regional issues and solving regional problems.
