The centerpiece of the KCTCS workforce and economic development efforts is the Kentucky Workforce Investment Network System (KY WINS). Through KY WINS, KCTCS colleges work with you to provide the training your employees need to keep your company competitive in today's global economy.
Through KY WINS, companies receive funding to assist with the cost of providing workforce training and assessment services to current, as well as, potential employees. KY WINS funds are distributed on a project basis and require a company cash match of 35%. The KCTCS Workforce Solutions staff will assist companies in developing training plans and applying for KY WINS funding.
Companies may apply individually or as a training network with other companies. The training networks meet common training needs of business and industry from various sectors of the economy. The network approach is successful because companies who only need one or two employees trained are able to join with other companies to obtain cost-effective and timely training. KCTCS Workforce Solutions staff will assist companies in developing the training networks.
