RFP Solicitations for Assistance -- Skills Gap Assessment

Posted on Monday, March 2, 2020 by Nate Strum

GROW Licking County Community Improvement Corporation in partnership with OhioMeansJobs – Licking County and the Licking County Educational Service Center (ESC) are soliciting proposals from qualified consulting firms and teams to aid in providing Licking County a needs assessment around gaps in education and workforce development.

Background: As part of an effort to create a county wide economic development strategy, GROW Licking
County CIC engaged The Montrose Group in 2017 to formulate a strategy that focused on
infrastructure, transportation, and workforce (final plan can be found here). As part of this
adopted strategy, and in partnership with OhioMeansJobs-Licking County and the Licking County
Chamber of Commerce, GROW Licking County CIC launched Licking County Works, an
occupational marketing campaign focused on career pathways in Licking County (website can be
found here
).

To further implement this strategy, in 2019, GROW Licking County CIC further
engaged OhioMeansJobs – Licking County as well as the Licking County Educational Service
Center (ESC) to establish a needs assessment, aligning local curriculum and skills development
activities to the career pathways in Licking County.
