In September, the Kentucky Career Center – TENCO is celebrating Workforce Development Month. Workforce development services are more important than ever to ensure that all job seekers have the skills necessary to fill businesses’ workforce demands.

Kentucky Career Center – TENCO provides training programs and support services for individuals seeking a career or employment opportunity. We also serve as a bridge for area employers who are looking for talent.

We have numerous programs that guide individuals into in-demand careers, and we have a small but mighty staff of 70+ professionals throughout northeast Kentucky, all looking to assist you in making this connection. In addition, we have training and support funding to assist individuals in attaining their career goals.
