Workforce Training & Education Coordinating Board
The Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board (Workforce Board) is a Governor-appointed body representing a partnership of 12 members from business, labor, and government.
The Workforce Board advises the Governor on workforce development policy, ensures that the state's workforce preparation services and programs work together, and evaluates performance. The Board also advocates for the non-baccalaureate training and education needs of the workers who account for about 75 percent of Washington state's workforce.
The Workforce Board, with the assistance of the Workforce staff and partners, prepares a strategic plan for Washington state's workforce development system called High Skills, High Wages.
An Interagency Committee facilitates and supports the coordinating role of the Board.
