Webinar on Using Labor Market Information in HVRPs
Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 at 2 p.m. EST
Labor Market Information (LMI) describes current and projected data such as the number and types of available jobs, their characteristics, and the characteristics of the labor supply. HVRPs are expected to deliver job-driven training based on labor market information (LMI) and, as part of the grant application, provide detailed local LMI and current trends within their geographic service area. LMI can be used to guide jobseekers in choosing which fields of study, training and credentials to pursue. It can also guide HVRP efforts to engage employers in expanding sectors. On Feb. 26, 2015, NVTAC held a webinar on using LMI as part of your HVRP program. This webinar webinar highlighted two sources for LMI that can inform employer development activities and had two HVRP Directors talk about their views on using LMI data and the experiences in their programs.
Meg Little from NCHV and John Rio from AHP will co-facilitate the presentation and discussion. Our guests include Dana L. Niemela, MSW, HVRP Coordinator, City and County of Denver and Jaime Wood, HVRP Coordinator, Berkley Charleston Dorchester Council of Governments.
