About the Indiana Works Councils

The Regional Works Councils were created by unanimous vote during the 2013 legislative session. Each of the 11 council are comprised of approximately 15 local education and workforce leaders from within their respective region. The Works Councils are charged with facilitating sector partnerships within their region and enhancing the career readiness of Hoosier adults and high school students through the development and support of innovative career and technical education (CTE) curricula. This is achieved by expanding new approaches toward earning industry-recognized certifications, increasing dual credits attainment, and creating both project-based learning and work-based learning opportunities designed to align curriculum with regional workforce needs.

The Regional Works Councils staff provides each council with administrative support, consultation services, grant administration, project management, and board instruction and development. The staff also collaborates the efforts of each council through the development of best practices and the planning of regional and statewide conferences.

Two Plan A's

"All students deserve the same opportunity for success, whether they want to go to college or start their career right out of high school. This is not about a Plan A and a Plan B –this is about two Plan A’s.” ~ Governor Mike Pence
