On May 9th, 2017, the National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB) and their network of American Job Centers announced the launch of Study Workforce, an online learning platform to support workforce board members, workforce development professionals, elected officials, and agency staff seeking to build their knowledge and skills in the workforce development sphere.

The Study Workforce platform is designed to help professionals involved in the workforce development arena to understand how the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) can be leveraged in support of a workforce and economic development agenda that builds communities and benefits constituents. Understanding how the workforce development system functions under WIOA can help professionals meet their goals of improving the lives of residents through education and job training, and enabling economic success and business competitiveness.

NAWB is a membership organization and advocate for more than 550 workforce development boards. The Study Workforce project was funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
