Mr. John Shannon

It is truly my pleasure to welcome you to the Eastern North Carolina Regional Skills Center (ENCRSC) webpage.  Our new facility has been in the works for over a decade and we are finally ready to open it to high school students of Onslow County, Duplin County, Jones County and Lejeune High School.

This state-of-the-art building will offer advanced training opportunities for these students that they traditionally have not been able to get.  Many times, Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are offered at one or a few schools due to the high equipment cost or the space needed to provide the instruction.  The ENCRSC brings resources together and makes these separated offerings available for as many as 10 high schools when we combine our efforts with our educational and industry partners.

Providing well-trained individuals for the regional workforce needs is the focus of our programs.  Industry recognized credentials and certifications are a key to achieving this goal.  Business partnerships and student internships will be a large part of the successes of all that we are doing at the Center.  By connecting our instruction with the training needs of the regional workforce, we will fill the pipeline of economic development with highly-qualified individuals well prepared for work.

Additionally, strong partnerships between the secondary schools and their respective post-secondary partners will continue to strengthen the workforce training in the region.

The combination of secondary schools, post-secondary partners, business and industry support and guidance and …….will provide overall workforce and economic growth across the region.

New offerings will be brought on board over time as the regional needs change and new partners join the journey.

Again, WELCOME!  Visit our site often to see what amazing things we have going on and are planning for the future.
