DurhamWorks.org is part of the NCWorks system designed to provide support, training, job opportunities, and resources for business to create a model of shared economic prosperity for all. This work is coordinated by the Durham Workforce Development Board, a group comprised of a wide variety of individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the local area to facilitate, plan and coordinate workforce development resources to maximize the efforts of government, businesses, workforce partners, and education. The board promotes a responsive workforce development system, develops a job training plan for the provision of coordinated employment and training services, provides oversight and guidance for workforce development activities, and provides employment and training services designed to alleviate the social, educational, and economic problems of groups or individuals, including but not limited to those with employment barriers.

2021 SPECIAL RECOGNITION REBECCA AXFORD |  ApprenticeshipNC

The Durham Workforce Development Board is excited to celebrate board member Rebecca Axford as she receives this special recognition! Ms. Axford, is the Director of the Raleigh-Durham Electrical JATC apprenticeship program, which was registered  in Durham, NC in 1980. While the apprenticeship and employment program has been and remains very successful, there were growing concerns about diversifying the talent pool. In 2018, Ms. Axford registered a pre-apprenticeship program focusing on recruitment of minorities, women, veterans and youth – and partnered with the Durham Workforce Development to populate the first cohort.

Please watch this video that recognizes Ms. Axford’s passion and successes! Congratulations, Rebecca!
