Washington Integrated Sector Employment (WISE)

The Washington Integrated Sector Employment (WISE) Consortia brings together the manufacturing, clean energy, and construction sectors to create employment opportunities for TAA impacted workers and other participants. Using stacked and latticed credentials and pathways, the consortia seeks to accelerate the time for workers to return to employment in family wage jobs. Based on previous skills, gaps in education, and career interests, participants will find employment in technical customer service positions, skilled trade apprenticeships, or advanced manufacturing jobs. Recognizing that the modern workforce requires constant learning, the consortium creates a lifelong learning loop for these workers to earn associate and bachelor degrees as they gain new industry experience. Additionally, the consortia will leverage the skills participants bring to the program by implementing competency based learning and prior learning assessments where possible.
