SCBio addressing workforce issues in pilot with two-year colleges

South Carolina’s life science sector creates twice as many jobs as the average of all other sectors in the state economy, according to a recent study, but whether it can fill those positions is another matter — especially in the manufacturing and logistics side of the house.

SCBio, the state’s association for life science organizations, has announced plans to launch  a curriculum pilot geared toward two-year students in South Carolina’s technical college network. So far, Tri-County Technical College, Trident Technical College, Greenville Technical College and Midlands Technical College have signed on to the pilot, she said, which covers a track for pharmaceutical or biotech professionals and those seeking a career in the medical device field.
