This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Workforce Development.

Workforce development is a general term to describe various efforts to improve the work and work-readiness skills of all citizens. Workforce development efforts are often referred to generically as "job training" or "jobs" programs. They are often administered by single-purpose employment organizations or by multi-purpose community-improvement organizations as a part of larger community economic development programs.
