To be the leading source of professional and responsive workforce development services to businesses and job seekers.
Carroll County has a long history of providing community-based workforce development programs and resources in partnership with federal and state programs. The Carroll County Business/Employment Resource Center (BERC) has been in existence in Carroll County for over 30 years. Operating under the Comprehensive Employment & Training Act (CETA), Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and currently the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA), BERC has remained focused on meeting the demands of local businesses and job seekers. WIOA brings together, in strategic coordination, the core programs of federal investment in skill development: • Employment and training services for adults, dislocated workers, and youth and Wagner-Peyser employment services administered by the Department of Labor (DOL) through formula grants to states; • Adult education and literacy programs and Vocational Rehabilitation state grant programs that assist individuals with disabilities in obtaining employment administered by the Department of Education.
BERC works with Mid-Maryland Workforce Development Board and partners to develop a strategic, integrated plan that meets the county’s labor force needs and supports economic growth. We lead efforts to engage employers, develop and implement career pathways and enhance coordination with education partners.
Working with local and statewide workforce and labor market systems, BERC is able to target workforce development and training programs to meet business and job seeker goals.
In Carroll County BERC serves as the workforce development arm of the Carroll County Department of Economic Development. We assist existing businesses and those moving to the area with strategies that meet employers’ workforce needs, including incumbent worker training, registered apprenticeship, transitional jobs, on-the-job training, and customized training.
We also collaborate with other county agencies so that our job seekers, whether a low-income adult, dislocated worker, veteran or vulnerable youth, have the opportunity to access all resources that will help them reach economic success.LEARN MORE ABOUT US
