Why Partner with ESCC?

There are many reasons for selecting Eastern Shore Community College (ESCC) as your partner for Workforce Training and Development.

Enhancing Profits and Productivity

ESCC is also committed to helping local Eastern Shore business and industry compete and win in today’s global marketplace. In addition to open enrollment continuing education classes, our Workforce Development staff can customize a program to meet your specific needs, and, in most cases, deliver that program right in your own workplace to save you downtime and travel costs.

Local Access to Global Resources

With our connections to statewide and regional colleges and universities as well as resources for video conference and web-based training, ESCC can bring a world of training and development opportunities to your local Eastern Shore workforce.

We evaluate and monitor the quality of all programs, whether they are our own, or whether we broker them in from one of our many partner training providers. As a neutral broker, we will look out for your needs in the often confusing training marketplace. Whenever you need training, let ESCC do the shopping and negotiating for you. The package you get will be tailored for your specific needs and will often be more cost efficient as well.

Real World Training for Real World Workers

ESCC is committed to hiring trainers and facilitators that are not only academically credentialed, but also highly experienced in “real world” business situations. Our trainers are committed to providing extensive “hands-on” experience to participants along with the necessary theory behind the practice. This practical approach to teaching ensures that employee participants learn valuable skills in class that they can apply immediately in the workplace.
