Strong Workforce Program (SWP) –
Regional Industry Advisories
The Los Rios Community College District, in partnership with Valley Vision, and in collaboration with Sierra College and Yuba Community College District, invests Strong Workforce funding to organize and convene Regional Advisories. The objectives of the Regional Advisory meetings are to build strong relationships between employers, educators, and the workforce.
Each Advanced Manufacturing Advisory produces a meeting proceedings report that details key findings, labor market information from the Centers of Excellence, panelist overviews, and more. You can find these materials and event recordings below:
- Automation & AI in Agriculture and Manufacturing
- Beverage Creation, Production, Distribution and Retail
Previous Years’ SWP Advisories
Workforce Needs Assessment
The following Workforce Needs Assessment reports present findings on the analysis of the Advanced Manufacturing industry cluster. The reports provide overviews of the cluster, industry trends and economic impact, as well as overviews of the top demand occupations in the cluster requiring postsecondary education or training, along with projected occupational demand, institutions providing related education and training, and possible workforce gaps.
Valley Vision and partners are working across the region to address the key findings from these Strong Workforce advisories and assessments as part of Developing a Ready Workforce.
