The ASSIST Program is a partnership among South Carolina Technical Colleges working with business, labor, and government to create tailored education and training programs to meet employers’ needs and give students the skills required and placement assistance to obtain good jobs, earn family-sustaining wages, and advance along a career pathway. Partner colleges are creating new online and hybrid courses that meet industry needs and develop career pathways for students and are working to help students learn more in less time and get employment in their field of study.
