About Workforce Education

Seattle depends on a highly skilled workforce. We offer students supportive, relevant career and technical education (CTE) and partner with employers to help meet their needs.

As an open-access learning institution, Seattle Colleges prepares each student for success in life and work, fostering a diverse, engaged, and dynamic community (Seattle Colleges Mission).

Reinforcing that mission, we also work toward the vision and mission of the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC). We strive to elevate Washington’s community and technical colleges as national leaders in workforce education by serving as proactive leaders and innovators, providing thought-partnership, advocacy and resources in service to the workforce education field—the result being an innovative, skilled, and educated workforce.
