At a NC Works Commission meeting this week, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper challenged business and workforce development leaders to increase the number of work-based learning opportunities across the state, part of a broader initiative to help North Carolinians become more job-ready. Gov. Cooper and the Commission highlighted work-based learning approaches, such as apprenticeships and job-shadowing. The governor also called for the commissioners to provide him firm recommendations at the Commission’s next meeting for further action to advance the state’s workforce development agenda.
