Workforce Train & Educ Coord Board


The Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board (the Board) is a partnership of business, labor, and government dedicated to helping Washington residents obtain and succeed in family wage jobs, while meeting employers' needs for skilled workers. The Board serves as an advisor to the Governor and the Legislature on issues related to workforce development. Core functions include planning, coordination, performance accountability, policy analysis, and research and development for 19 funding streams that comprise the state's workforce development system. The Board provides specific consumer protection for students of private career colleges and veterans using GI Bill benefits, and more general protection for users of the broader system. The Board serves by federal and state statutes as overseer of the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), administrator of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, and the Veterans Course Approval program. By state statute, the Board administers the Private Vocational Schools Act, the Tuition Recovery Trust Fund, and the state’s industry cluster analysis program. In order to advance the efficiency and effectiveness of the state’s workforce development system, the Board also undertakes research and demonstration activities and supports professional development opportunities for workforce development practitioners in partnership with stakeholder organizations.
