The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) partners with public junior colleges, public state colleges or public technical colleges under an agreement with school districts across the state to expand dual-credit and career and technical education programs through the use of Skills Development Funds and other resources.
Dual credit and technical education programs are funded in an effort to respond to industry demands for skilled workers in technical fields. High school students can enroll in postsecondary classes, while simultaneously completing high school coursework. This gives students the ability to get a jumpstart on their education or career goals as they earn credits toward a degree or professional credential while still in school.
