Job Training@100%: Innovation 4
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project: Job Training.4.1
Project 1: The “plain language for existing websites” project
In some city and county systems, thoughtful professionals spend a great deal of time and effort trying to design perfect websites with intuitive time listings of job training offerings, easy-to-read maps to get you to such services, and other features to facilitate figure out how to sign up for programs. Of course, colleges and universities are big businesses vying for clients/students. Some are excellent at describing how certain courses lead to specific jobs. Others are not clear about whether a particular career area is still a viable avenue to a steady paycheck. Your mission is to figure out whether your vocational and higher ed institutions, as well as county and city governments, are taking this opportunity to simply and efficiently explain on their websites, on print ed brochures and schedules, or on an app, what types of job and career development courses are offered, and do so in all relevant languages.
