The College of Western Idaho (CWI) has launched work on a comprehensive local needs assessment in compliance with the 2018 Perkins V federal legislation, and the College is looking for community input. Once completed, the assessment will provide a clear view of labor needs in our ten-county service region. The assessment will additionally offer insight into opportunities to provide needed training to the local labor market and emerging industries. Results from the needs assessment will inform annual Perkins V applications and CWI institutional strategies to address the current and future needs of the local communities and businesses that make up Region 3 and the State of Idaho.
The College has retained MGT Consulting Group, a national higher education consulting and research firm, to assist with the process — you may be contacted by either MGT or CWI. Please engage and respond to their invitations to provide input and feedback which will be critical in remapping the direction of CWI's Career and Technical Education programs.
Two forums will be held in December for the community to provide input:
Thursday, Dec. 5
1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Nampa Campus Micron Education Center
Room 1701 A/B
Friday, Dec. 6
8 to 11 a.m.
Nampa Campus Aspen Classroom Building
