At Workforce Solutions Panhandle, we understand the importance of finding the right candidates to fulfill the needs of an organization. Responding to the changing needs of populations and making use of new technologies will require health professionals and educators to develop new skills and assume new roles.

That is why Texas adopted the 60x30TX plan, and in partnership with No Limits No Excuses, will host a panel of healthcare professionals, along with an audience of secondary and post-secondary educators, to encouraging alignment of learning pathways that will lead new professionals into the field and equip them with the knowledge needed for this changing world.

Please take a moment to fill out the employer survey. This is valuable feedback we use to improve the quality of STEM programs in the Texas Panhandle, and thus, the competency of our future workforce.
