STEM Industry Profiles

Last year the WIB hosted a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Summit that brought guidance counselors from local area high schools and employers together. The summit focused on the importance of STEM careers for North Shore employers and the skills needed to obtain these careers. Participating Employers included Analogic, Mircoline Surgical, Applied Materials, Fleet Machine, North Shore Innoventures, New England Biolabs, and EBSCO Information Services. Guidance counselors all had one-on-one time with representative from each company. After the event, the WIB produced STEM Industry Profiles based on the information given by our employer representatives. The STEM Industry Profiles are listed below and are based on the line of business of the employers who attended the event. These profiles provide a resource for youth development professionals to share with teens on STEM careers available on the North Shore.

Online Learning Report

In an effort to improve services to One-Stop Career Center customers, the North Shore WIB has conducted a survey of several colleges and university faculty on the prevalence of online courses. Conducted in conjunction with Salem State University, Endicott Colllege, and North Shore Community College, the online learning survey sought to determine the current depth, availability, and suitability of online training for Career Center customers. The impetus for the online learning survey came from focus groups of One-Stop Career Center customers who had requested that training options be available through online or hybrid courses.

The online survey found that the role of technology is changing the delivery of services throughout higher education. Online and hybrid courses have expanded the accessibility of services and options available to students. Our survey results found that nearly every subject could be offered in an online format depending on a particular institutions offering. Student success with online learning came down to two main indicators, self-motivation and time management. With online learning, students have more responsibility for their own learning and progress compared to traditional on the ground courses. This requires students to have the motivation to continue through a course without the accountability that comes from face-to-face interaction with their professor. Time management skills become highly important as students need to manage their course work independently to meet deadlines.

A one page summary of the Online Learning Survey is available.

Welcome to the North Shore Workforce Investment Board’s Strategic Plan for 2015 – 2017.  This document follows a strategic planning process begun in 2008, updated in 2012, all finding direction from current labor market information, board-led research into service patterns for job seekers and companies, surveys and discussion with partners and other stakeholders, and economic development research that looks well into the future.  The mission, vision, goals and objectives developed under the 2008 plan remain virtually the same, but the activities and benchmarks designed to reach these goals have been updated to reflect current realities.
