Nebraska Training: What you need to know

Effective July 1, 2015, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Like its predecessor, the WIOA is a federal workforce development law that provides for state and federal employment, education, job training, and support services. The law is designed to help jobseekers access employment, education, training, and support services and to match employers with the skilled workers they need.

Nebraska has outlined four specific goals to be accomplished through its Workforce Investment Plan. Through this plan, Nebraska seeks to develop a dynamic, demand-driven workforce development system focusing on high-growth and high-demand industries, continue to increase the integration of services to businesses and jobseekers through public and private partners, recognize the need to meet the changing needs of businesses and individuals with a more coordinated system, and provide the knowledge, skills, and resources to learn, earn, and live.
