Welcome to Los Angeles Valley College Workforce Development. Our department works directly with community and industry partners to create pathways to employment and career advancement for those we serve.   Current high placement Workforce Academies include:  Bus Operations Training Academy, Manufacturing, Biotech, Human Services, and Professional Extension offerings.  We also work to create customized training as needed by our community and employer partners. 

Believing in a holistic approach to Workforce Training, we partner with our LAVC Family Resource Center and CalWORKS program to embed family support services and resources (Strengthening Working Families) into all of our offerings.

We strive, through partnerships, to make Los Angeles Valley College Workforce Training a model of Workforce Development excellence.  We are continually working to create a college and community-wide integrated service delivery system of training, and educational and employment services to open career pathways and economic success for all community members.

Please see each of our specific pages dedicated to Academies and related programs for more information.

I wish you all the best on your career and academic pathways!
