Massachusetts Worker Education Roundtable

The Massachusetts Worker Education Roundtable is a network of worker education programs dedicated to promoting partnerships of employers, unions and educators that provide high quality education as well as training for Massachusetts union members.  Programs that develop partnerships with employers, unions, learners and educators are programs that succeed.  Here's what one study found: Success by Design.

Every workplace has its own culture and its own set of learning needs. Roundtable has developed tools to determine these needs for each workplace, and tailor program development to those needs.  Whether your workplace needs basic skills, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), job training, leadership development or any lifelong learning, we can provide the expertise to make it happen.
