We help build state capacity to establish or operate professional development programs.

The LINCS Professional Development Center (PD) Center assists states in meeting the state leadership requirements set forth in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Section 223. By leveraging available LINCS resources, trainings, and train-the-trainer opportunities, states can expand their capacity to establish or operate a high-quality professional development program.
