The Full Story
The Highlands Training Center
The Highlands Economic Partnership was a part of a community impact group that was awarded a grant from the state of TN to aid those individuals on government assistance. The goal with the monies awarded are to pull children out of poverty. The Highlands Economic Partnership has used these funds to create the Highlands Training Center which focuses on workforce re-entry. Our institution is accredited through the state of TN and offers the Aim High certification which focuses on foundational workforce principles such as loyalty to employer, timeliness, team communication, emotional intelligence, conflict management, professional development and so much more.
During the first portion of the Aim High certification, individuals will use psychometric data to learn about their strengths as well as what industries and jobs they will have fulfillment doing. They will also learn critical components of emotional intelligence, professional development and team communication tactics.
Once the classroom portion of the Aim High certification is complete, we introduce our graduates to our industry partners based on their psychometric data to give them the highest likelihood of success possible in their new role.
This is our team that is dedicated to making a difference in other peoples lives that are ready to step back into the workforce with confidence.
