In 2003, TENCO Workforce Development Board elected to prioritize financial resources by industry sector. Annually, the TENCO Board and staff analyzes labor market information from past WIOA participants, Office of Employment and Training reports, and other sources to determine if the occupational sectors selected are still viable for the TENCO area. Representation from business, education, and public agencies are included in the sector review and recommendations made to the TENCO Workforce Investment Board.
Sector Strategies is an approach to meeting workforce needs by analyzing the local labor market data and determining which occupational sectors show growth potential and provide high wage, high demand jobs for the residents of the TENCO area. The TENCO Workforce Development Board supports the current occupational sectors for our ten-county region.
The Workforce Development Board has identified the occupations shown below as the high demand jobs in our area.
