General Information About Tennessee Technology Center at Whiteville
Mission Statement The mission of the Tennessee Technology Center at Whiteville is to be the premier provider of workforce development in Hardeman, Haywood, and Fayette Counties. This mission is fulfilled by: 1. Providing competency based training through traditional and distance learning instructional delivery systems of the highest quality that will qualify individuals for employment and/or advancement in jobs. 2. Providing high quality training and retraining of employed workers. 3. Providing high quality training that is economical and accessible to all residents of the area, thereby contributing to the economic and community development of the communities we serve. Mission The Tennessee Technology Center at Whiteville is a post-secondary institution established through legislative provisions to provide occupational and technical training for post-high school students, school dropouts, adults needing retraining, handicapped students, the older worker, apprentices, and employed workers. TTCW bases its programs on the belief that quality occupational technical training should be provided to meet the needs of these identified individuals. The primary emphasis of instruction at TTCW will continue to be that of manipulative skill development on "real hardware" and "live projects." It is supplemented with related basic and technical information needed by workers in industrial, trade, business, and service type occupations. Such instruction is designed to prepare the learner for employment by providing the necessary skills and related technical information within the shortest time possible. The State of Tennessee provides a special benefit to the business and industrial communities located within the boundaries of Hardeman, Haywood, Fayette, Madison, and Chester Counties offering specialized training through the TTCW. As economic and technological advancements place new demands on businesses and industry and mandate employees be retrained, the Technology Center will work to develop courses and provide quality training to meet those needs. What can we do for your business or industry? Assist employees in developing new skills and upgrading existing skills.
