Maines Workforce Development System

The 21st century economy requires workers to make a commitment to lifelong learning - including pursuit of post-secondary education and training - in order to expand their opportunities for meaningful employment. Maine’s workforce development system provides resources for learning and skill enhancement for Maine workers and employers.

This document provides a map of Maine’s public sector investment in workforce development. It charts the institutions, agencies, programs, amounts of funding, populations served, types of services, providers, participants, and service access points within Maine’s publicly funded workforce development system. This document does not include the significant investment of employers and unions in skills training. It also does not include Maine’s investment in K-12 education, which is working to prepare all Maine students to be college, career and citizenship ready.
