RECOGNIZED COMMUNITY AND TECHNICAL COLLEGE PROGRAMS
To date, 50 programs at 28 community and technical colleges across Texas have incorporated skill standards into their technical education programs to ensure that the workforce skill needs of business and industry are met. These programs have been granted Texas skill standards based program recognition.
To receive program recognition, the college staff has documented the courses in which they teach the skill standards competencies, or key activities.
They also have agreed to assess their students on the basis of the related performance criteria, skills and knowledge specified in the skill standards. The Texas Workforce Investment Council (TWIC) recommends that employers consider these programs first in their recruitment efforts, as a likely source of qualified job applicants.
