WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT


Matching skills with a company’s needs is critical to the location decisions. To meet employer needs for skilled workers, Seguin Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) has established relationships with our local workforce development programs through the Texas Workforce Commission and Alamo Workforce Solutions. Not only can we connect you and your business with comprehensive training but, Seguins’ location between San Antonio and New Braunfels has an available labor force of 1.1 million.

Central Texas Technology Center- Alamo Colleges
The Alamo Colleges, in partnership with the Seguin 4A Economic Development Board and the New Braunfels 4B Economic Development Board have worked to bring Alamo Colleges services to Seguin, New Braunfels, and the surrounding area. This facility is intended as an avenue for Seguin/New Braunfels area residents to attain entry-level skills or increase technical skills and to connect to jobs or higher education opportunities.

The Central Texas Technology Center (CTTC) opened its doors to students in 2004. The center provides services to New Braunfels, Comal, Seguin, Navarro and Marion independent school districts, enrolling students in dual credit courses and works with regional industries to develop employee training programs.

The Seguin Economic Development Corporation contributed $600,000 to the new expansion. The expansion will allow students to acquire an associate’s degree at the CTTC for the first time, as well as enhance the workforce development services the center offers. The 30,000-square-feet, $6.3 million expansion — more than doubled the current 25,000-square-feet facility and includes additional instructional space, biology and chemistry labs, student support areas and faculty offices.  For more information about the CTTC, visit their website here.
