Health care workforce survey under way
The three-county region served by NCTC is the target of the largest health care industry employer outreach and workforce survey ever undertaken in the area. Denton, Montague and Cooke county health services businesses are receiving calls and being asked to participate in a labor market survey that takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Businesses can preview the survey questions and set up appointments online for taking the telephone survey. The web address is http://usworks.com/nctcSurveyInfo/ .
Answers provided by local businesses will help identify current and projected job openings. ERISS Corp. of San Diego, Calif., will conduct the detailed telephone surveys of regional employers. The firm specializes in job/labor market surveys and interactive Web applications.
Approximately 800 businesses in three Texas counties will be contacted over a three-month period.
This project comes to NCTC through the Department of Labor, MATRIX Grant, which has to-date assisted 1,500 students in completing training programs geared toward health care occupations.

NCTC, UNT join forces to support children
NCTC and the University of North Texas have created a partnership designed to support local youth. Donations from community businesses help send children and teens to UNT athletic events. The program is called “Basketball in a Bag.”
These events have been designed to encourage community involvement with children while offering kids a safe and entertaining evening.
Donations for the event send the young children and teens to see a sporting event, receive goodies and a meal pack.
The next event will be during football season, and program officials have already begun to look for partners.
To partner with NCTC and UNT for a future event, contact Judi Archer at 940-498-6234.
