Alexandria/Arlington Regional Workforce Council’s Talent Development Strategic Plan marks the acceleration of publicly funded talent development programming in the Alexandria/Arlington Regional Workforce Area. In 2016 the Council, in collaboration with our Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Partners, convened a dedicated team of subject matter experts to pursue five strategic goals that reflect a unified vision for our region. Two years have passed since the development of our initial four-year strategic plan, and the Council and its partners are proud of our progress toward reaching the goals we set for our region.
For this midpoint update of the plan, the Council reviewed the current regional economic and labor market conditions and largely found the strategies laid out two years ago to remain appropriate to address our workforce needs. However, new developments in the Commonwealth and our region, such as Medicaid expansion, an increasingly tight labor supply, and Amazon’s upcoming siting of an additional headquarters in our region, necessitate discussions and planning to ensure our region is ready to respond. The updates made within this plan reflect how we intend to respond to new developments, while staying the course with the strategies we know are working.
