By 2025, two million jobs are expected to go unfilled in the automotive industry due to a skills gap.
In response to this growing need, Workforce Solutions at Northeast State and the Center for Industrial Services at the University of Tennessee, are offering a leadership development program targeting automotive-related industries.
The Tennessee Automotive Supply Chain Workforce Readiness Program, funded in part by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), is the first program in Tennessee to bring workforce development, education, and industry experts together to develop a program customized for the automotive industry and designed to prepare workers for managerial and leadership roles.
The training will be delivered in a half-day format, one day a week. Topics include leadership, communications, coaching, supervision, quality control, safety, critical thinking, and problem-solving.
The training will be held at the Basler Library on Northeast State’s Blountville Campus. The first session will begin Sept. 12, 2017.
Fees for the training are $1,600.00 per participant which includes all materials.
Human resources professionals can take advantage of a special educational opportunity offered by Workforce Solutions at Northeast State.

Enjoy a night of terrific music when two extraordinary musicians collaborate for a concert at Northeast State Community College on Sept. 14.
Award winning musicians Jeff Little and Wayne Henderson will perform at the College’s Regional Center for the Performing Arts on the Blountville campus next to Tri-Cities Regional Airport. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online now at www.northeaststate.edu/tickets.
Northeast State hosts the concert as part of the College’s Because of You weeklong scholarship fundraising event. The concert and other events raise money to benefit students with scholarships and other programs.
Jeff Little’s approach to the piano is based on the deep musical traditions of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Appalachian or Americana music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But Little is an exception – and a remarkable one. His distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat-picked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision, and clarity.
Little’s performances include The Smithsonian Institution, The National Folk Festival, American Piano Masters, Merlefest and many festivals, performing arts centers, and colleges throughout the U.S. He has also taken his traditional piano style around the world performing in countries such as France, Bahrain, Sri Lanka and Tanzania. He has released four CDs, and been featured on National Public Radio and PBS many times.
Wayne Henderson is the Appalachian guitarist that Nashville pickers all talk about. A National Heritage Award recipient, Henderson is regarded as a brilliant musician and instrument maker. His reputation as a top-notch finger-picking guitarist is well-known throughout the region and country.
Sometimes Wayne’s playing is mistaken for flatpicking, but he actually uses a thumb-pick and fingerpicks to achieve amazing speed and fluidity, transforming fiddle and banjo pieces, and even the occasional jazz standard, into stunning guitar solos. In addition to his reputation as a guitarist, Henderson is a luthier of great renown.
Blues guitarist John Cephas said that Wayne Henderson “is probably the most masterful guitar maker in this whole United States.” Wayne has dazzled audiences at Carnegie Hall, on three national tours of “Masters of the Steel-String Guitar”, and in seven nations of Europe, Asia and Africa.
