OC Regional Planning Unit

REGIONAL PLANNING: Regional plans and partnerships required by WIOA function under California’s State Plan as the primary mechanism for aligning educational and training provider services with regional industry sector needs in California’s fourteen WIOA Regional Planning Units (RPUs). California state law requires coordination between the K-12, Community Colleges, and WIOA systems and requires the use of sector strategies as the operational framework for the state’s workforce system. These two state mandated requirements are met under the State Plan by making federally required WIOA regional plans and partnerships the primary mechanism for aligning educational and training programs with regional industry sector needs. As such, the main aim of regional plans is the development of “regional sector pathway” programs, including: the identification, utilization, and servicing of career pathway programs aligned with regional industry sector needs in each of the RPUs.
