NIST is pleased to announce funding on behalf of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) to build multistakeholder workforce partnerships of employers, schools and institutions of higher education, and other community organizations.
NIST intends to advance NICE’s goals and the President’s Job-Driven Training and Ready to Work Initiative by providing assistance to establish Regional Alliances and Multistakeholder Partnerships to Stimulate (RAMPS) Cybersecurity Education and Workforce Development. Effective multistakeholder workforce partnerships focus on organizing multiple employers with skill shortages in specific occupations to focus on developing the skilled workforce to meet industry needs within the local or regional economy. Read the full press release here.

- K-12 school or Local Education Agency (LEA),
