Welcome to the ROC.
Current estimates show that approximately 70% of jobs in Washington will require post-high-school education by 2023, but only about 40% of recent high school graduates are achieving post-high-school credentials. As Governor Inslee’s Career Connected Washington Task Force says, “Washington’s employers are leaving high-wage in-demand jobs unfilled due to a lack of qualified candidates.”
The CTCs are perfectly suited to help fill this gap.
We need to make sure the CTCs have the funding they need to do the work the state and its communities need.
