Workforce & Education
Made with pride, every time.
From the Exceptional Skills site of the Ready to Be Ready Camp for children to an innovative nursing education program that provides education, jobs and healthcare, Hancock County is dedicated to providing educational opportunities for a workforce ready for the 21st century. In addition to its own workforce, Hancock County is able to draw skilled employees from several surrounding counties.
Tennessee's innovative workforce partnerships and education reform are developing qualified candidates for skills in high demand. Tennessee is leading the way in education reform by increasing the number of Tennesseans with college degrees or certifications through the Tennessee Promise and Tennessee Reconnect. As the first state in the country with these initiatives, Tennessee promises employers the support of highly skilled workers.
