Workforce & Community

The great majority of Northern Essex alumni continue to live and work locally after graduation, which is just one of the reasons local employers are so interested in partnering with the college.

These employers serve on one of our 20 program advisory boards; hire our interns and graduates; and come to us with their workforce training needs. These connections benefit our students as well as employers, who count on Northern Essex for a well-trained workforce and solutions to their workforce challenges.

For Our Community

Northern Essex is proud to offer all sorts of education opportunities for our community. Whether you’re looking for an ESOL career program, improved computer skills, a date night cooking class, or training for professional certifications, we got you. 

After all, “community” IS in our name!
