8:00-9:45am on Wednesday, January 13, 2016
Convention Center, 152B
The National Network for the Transportation Workforce (NNTW)–which includes the Midwest Transportation Workforce Center–is presenting a session (#748) at the 2016 TRB Annual Meeting. In this session, the NNTW will present findings from Phase I of each regional center’s Job Needs and Priorities Report and elaborate on the transportation workforce landscape at the national and regional levels. A panel comprised of the NNTW regional center directors will discuss data methodologies, use of labor market real-time intelligence, state versus regional priorities, and how occupations analytics are guiding regional center activities. This panel discussion will consider the following questions:
- What was most revealing about the data at the regional level?
- What resources did you use to capture both workforce supply and demand at the regional level?
- What is the impact of these findings for the National Network?
- What are the next steps in the development of the regional and national workforce profiles?
This session is sponsored by the Standing Committee on Transportation Education and Training (ABG20)
