San Jacinto College leadership and craft trades will be among first courses delivered through partnership
PASADENA, Texas – The San Jacinto College Continuing and Professional Development (CPD) division is expanding its workforce training beyond Texas as a partner of the Global Corporate College (GCC).
The Global Corporate College includes a network of community colleges and universities in the United States and has partnerships in more than 30 countries. It provides employers with access to education programs and facilities. This is where Continuing and Professional Development at San Jacinto College comes in.
“This partnership will help more companies train their employees with the same curriculum at all of their locations, wherever that may be,” said Jerelyn Hughes-Glenn, director of computers/IT training with the CPD division at San Jacinto College. “For example, if we work with a company that wants leadership training for its employees, we can deliver the same training curriculum to all of their locations, thanks to the network we now have through the Global Corporate College.”
The CPD division provides workforce training for both current and future employees in the professional and technical job sectors that include applied technology and trades, computer/IT, advanced manufacturing, health occupations, business and professions, and maritime. The San Jacinto College CPD division will deliver leadership training and craft trades curriculum through the GCC before expanding its offerings in the near future.
"We are excited to partner with Global Corporate College to bring the training courses that have benefited so much of our local workforce to others across the nation and beyond," said Dr. Sarah Janes, associate vice chancellor for Continuing and Professional Development at San Jacinto College.
