Business Development and Training

The Workforce Education Department develops and delivers customer-focused workforce education programs that are customized and tailored through partnerships with the businesses, organizations, and individuals in the Potomac Highland communities we serve. Eastern will design the programs specifically for worker-learners in each of four broad categories of our service district's workforce:

  • Current Workforce
  • Emerging Workforce
  • Entrepreneurial Workforce
  • Transitional Workforce

These accessible, high-quality education and training programs meet or exceed customer goals and expectations by preparing worker-learners to meet the current and future challenges of a global economy and technological workplace. Taking advantage of these programs, worker-learners achieve personal and professional growth while enabling businesses and organizations to develop the employee skills, attitudes, and knowledge that will enhance profits and productivity.
