Ohio Board of Regents LiftEd Regional Meeting

The Ohio Board of Regents hosted the Ohio LiftEd conference in May that discussed the importance of postsecondary education and training for Ohioans striving to make the transition to a more skill-driven job market.

To expand upon the items covered at the conference in May, the Ohio Board of Regents will conduct a series of regional workshops to discuss and share perspectives on how colleges and universities, Adult Workforce Education Centers (AWE) and Adult Basic Literacy and Education (ABLE) can work together to meet regional employers' workforce development and training needs.  

The workshops will highlight opportunities to strengthen the connections between regional industries and current courses, certifications and degree programs to prepare adult learners for meaningful careers.  

Hocking College is honored to host the regional workshop for Southeastern Ohio on Friday, December 14 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Faculty and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Key topics that will be discussed at the LiftEd regional meetings include:
  • Taking advantage of resources available to help identify areas of growth
  • Identifying the training assets and gaps related to the demands of growth industries
  • Planning to assist adult learners through the education pipeline to fill critical jobs and advance their careers while enhancing their skills and credentials
Ohio ranks 27th among states in the number of adults entering the job market adequately prepared. Ohio's economy continues to diversify and change, requiring new skills and experiences for our citizens to be competitive in the global marketplace.
