Workforce Solutions Examples
  • Pipeline Recruitment Retention
  • Provide students faculty with opportunities
    such as job shadowing, mentoring, industry
    speakers, career clubs, etc.
  • Create flexible, short-term training options to
    keep up with ongoing industry training.
  • Create a system for continuous skills-upgrade
    training, career enhancement, and career ladders
    and lattices.
  • Skill Competencies Training
  • Create a map matrix of existing competencies
    and models, assess gaps, and validate/update
    regularly.
  • Develop models with incentives for K-12
    institutions to work with college and corporate
    partners.

8
Long Short-Term Solutions
  • Community Colleges Hold the Key

9
Opportunities
  • With each new industry breakthrough and
    advancement comes new jobs.

10

12
Introduction Biotechnology Community College
Training Programs
  • Demand (or workforce) driven
  • Fulfill local workforce needs
  • Training requirement varies to locale

13
Diverse Training Needs
  • Similar type of Biotech job positions exist
    across the country
  • There are emerging biotechnology specializations
  • Examples research development,
    bioprocessing/biomanufacturing and bioinformatics

14
Diverse Communities
  • Agricultural biotechnology - rural clusters
  • Manufacturing - Biomanufacturing/ bioprocessing
  • Informatics - life science applications linked to
    software/ IT clusters
  • Research Development adjacent to universities
    with biotechnology / biomedical research focus

15
Skills/Education Requirements Biotechnology
  • Discovery Research Technician or Assistant

  • Perform research tasks experiments
  • Analyze interpret data
  • Write experimental protocols, reports,
    summaries
  • Handle purchase lab equipment and supplies
  • Entry- Level Position
  • Associate degree in science with related
    experience with annual salary of 25,000
  • Other Positions
  • RD positions linked to bioinformatics

16
Skills/Education
  • Bioinformatics Associate
  • Description
  • Store, retrieve analyze biological information
    such as DNA and protein sequences
  • Run data analysis programs data mining on
    public gene databases
  • Work closely with research scientists to prepare
    software design specifications
  • Routinely use Linux, Oracle or Access database
    programs and Perl or Java language

18
Biomanufacturing Technician Jobs)
  • Note Any of the biomanufacturing jobs can be had
    at the entry or technician level, e.g. Upstream
    Bio-Manufacturing Technician pays about 40,000.
  • Education an Associate degree or Certificate
    from a community college biotechnology program
    with a biomanufacturing focus.
  • Example displaced worker with previous
    supervisory experience could be hired as a
    Supervisor in Upstream Bio-Manufacturing and
    garner a much higher salary (e.g. 70,000 vs.
    40,000).

19
  • Rational
  • Capture best practices in the development of
    skill standards, certification and curriculum in
    regionally specialized biotech training centers
  • Disseminate make available replicable models to
    community colleges across America
  • Composition
  • Team 5 centers of Excellence/Expertise
    regionally based with niche mandates
  • Collective purpose a national resource
