TCC receives grant to support workforce training for mature students

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (February 17, 2014) – The Division of Workforce Development at Tallahassee Community College has received a Plus 50 Encore Completion Program grant from the American Association of Community Colleges.

The goal of the Plus 50 project is to help more adults over age 50 successfully complete TCC workforce training certificates and not-for-credit credentials in high-demand career fields. The project will focus on training that leads to employer-recognized certificates in the fields of Medical Administrative Specialist and Health Information and Management.

“We are focused on meeting the needs of individuals in this demographic who want to retool their skills in order to move into a new career field,” said Amy Combs, program coordinator. “We want to help them make their final years—or decades—in the workforce their most productive and rewarding.”

The grant provides $15,000 spread over two years of project activities. Some of the first-year funding will be used to support targeted recruitment of people in the 50+ demographic through advertising and outreach to community organizations that serve mature individuals. The project will also offer specialized support services to help these students be successful in their workforce program.

For more information, contact Amy Combs at (850) 201-9766 or combsa@tcc.fl.edu.
