The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC), Employment Security Department, and Career Connect Washington (CCW) recently awarded the Training Fund $2M through the Washington Jobs Initiative Sectoral Partnerships. This funding will play a valuable role in supporting our entry-level healthcare pathway programs and partnerships.

In total, approximately $17M was awarded across eight sectoral partnerships and five key industries to help train and place 3,000 Washingtonians into good, family-sustaining, jobs. As Career Connect Washington’s Healthcare Sector Leader, the Training Fund is proud to continue facilitating cross-sector collaboration, pursuing workforce development opportunities, and promoting healthcare education and career pathways.

Maud Daudon, executive leader of CCW said, “The work of these sectoral partnerships will greatly enhance Career Connect Washington’s progress on providing new pathways to careers, especially for those farthest from opportunity.”
