Workforce Needs Assessment

NVTC is producing a needs assessment of the specific, future workforce needs of regional technology employers, with a focus on the most in-demand job categories and any gaps between the skill sets of the current workforce and employers' needs in filling open positions at the specific certification, work experience, soft skills and/or skill set level.

Our report will identify the highest-demand technology positions for regional employers as well as the positions they have the most difficulty filling, the skill sets and certifications (or combination of certifications) those positions require, which skill sets and certifications are lacking in the regional workforce for those positions and will provide recommendations to the Northern Virginia Community College, and other academic partners, on certifications, soft skills and/or skill sets to pursue through coursework.
