Employers

Employability is essential to the success of former offenders. As such, all WSD programs are designed to emphasize the skills that employers demand such as teamwork, decision making, cultural sensitivity/tolerance, and problem solving. Offenders who participate in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs operated by the WSD have the opportunity to earn a CTE certificate of completion and one or more industry recognized occupational certificates or licenses. The skills learned in each course are outlined in the skills section below.
