Growth and Employment in Pamlico County

‘Growth and Employment in Pamlico County’ (GEPC) is a comprehensive program that provides seamless transitions to employment in Pamlico County and the eastern region within various career clusters. This program integrates and advances various ongoing activities such as academic/instructional programming, apprenticeship/hands-on/work-based learning, and career counseling/student support services that lead to goal completion, employment, or transfer to four-year institutions.

Innovation or Best Practice

This initiative has allowed us to integrate various ongoing efforts in a comprehensive replicable manner that will advance our strategic initiatives and commitment to the completion and success agenda: student success and completion, increased and stronger partnerships, retooling of courses and programs, and creation of seamless pathways.  Discussions around the GEPC program have helped us identify and enhance synergies between curriculum and continuing education instructional opportunities.

Other innovative aspects that are being explored include embedding Small Business Center seminars/content into workforce programs and tracking/disseminating best practices.
