Skills2Compete-Maryland initiative to promote job skills
SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley will be joining U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to announce a public-private partnership with Discovery Communications to promote job skills.
The announcement is scheduled Tuesday in Silver Spring.
The O'Malley administration is aiming to increase the number of state residents who receive skills training through the state's workforce system by 20 percent by next year.
Under the Skills2Compete-Maryland initiative, the administration wants to have working state residents obtain access to the equivalent of at least two years of education or training beyond high school that leads to a career or technical credential, industry certification or a college degree.
