As the standard template for career pathway development in Nevada, LEAP integrates education, government and industry in a standardized process to ensure that workers have the skills they need to succeed in both the short – and long-term in the New Nevada, that education institutions know what they need to teach, and that companies have a qualified workforce. LEAP is designed to be a dynamic and responsive framework.
One of the opportunities for companies looking to expand or locate their business operation in Nevada is the State’s ready and willing workforce, as well as Nevada’s commitment to create training programs that will equip workers with the skills needed by our employers.
WINN represents the first workforce development training program of its kind in Nevada and is a commitment to businesses to arm them with the skilled employees that they need. The program is administered by GOED in coordination with Nevada System of Higher Education, the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovations, the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, and the Nevada Department of Education. Since its inception, WINN has made more than $8 million in strategic investments to enable accelerated on-ramps to high-skill and high wage jobs.
