In 2014, the San Diego Workforce Partnership released a series of Priority Sector reports in collaboration with the San Diego and Imperial Counties Community Colleges Association (SDICCCA). The five priority sectors include advanced manufacturing, clean energy, health care, information communication technologies (ICT), and life sciences. We identified and prioritized these sectors for workforce development because of their significant employment growth rates, strong wages and number of job openings.

This year, we are releasing an update for each of the priority sectors in a single report that provides new information and an overview of the changes each sector has experienced since the previous reports were published. This updated research will help guide the public workforce development system in supporting, developing and evaluating employment and training programs for the priority sectors.
