As one of Maryland's 16 community colleges, HCC is partnering with the State Administration on Skills2Compete-Maryland, a major initiative aimed at increasing the skills and competitiveness of Maryland's workforce.
By preparing more Marylanders for middle-skill jobs (those that require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four-year degree), Marylanders can gain the skills and credentials they need to get good jobs with family supporting wages. Middle-skill jobs are the backbone of the state's economy, making up half of Maryland’s labor market. Maryland’s community colleges are the places to go for training to meet the middle skill labor demand in the state. To learn more about this important effort, visit Skills2Compete-Maryland.
