Capacity Building › Consultants
SkillWorks has partnered with the Commonwealth Workforce Coalition to provide SkillWorks partnerships with a range of capacity building services that will help to strengthen partnerships and program outcomes.
The Commonwealth Workforce Coalition (CWC) will provide a range of services to partnerships. The services will be determined through a comprehensive assessment of the strengths and capacity needs of each partnership and its partners. CWC expects that each partnership will take advantage of a combination of individualized technical assistance, peer learning, and group training as part of their commitment to SkillWorks. Some activities may be focused exclusively on SkillWorks partnerships; others may be offered to the partnerships and to a broader range of organizations in order to bolster the peer learning opportunities that are the backbone of the CWC approach to capacity building. CWC’s goal is to foster this peer learning wherever possible and to complement it with individualized technical assistance where needed.
CWC will draw upon a core of local workforce professionals to deliver the capacity building services, and will also draw upon national organizations, including Public/Private Ventures and Jobs for the Future, to provide partnerships with the latest models and thinking on effective sectoral strategies.
