The CCSF Office of Workforce Development is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to support and strengthen Career Education at CCSF. The RFP linked below provides the background information and procedures for applying for funds for the 2021-22 fiscal year. It combines the application process for two funding streams: Perkins V and the Strong Workforce Program (SWP).

The timeline for the RFP process is as follows:

  • Technical support webinar – February 2nd at 2:00pm
  • Technology requests due to ITS – February 17th
  • Department and Collaborative applications due – March 4th
  • CTE Allocations subcommittee meeting – Late March/Early April
  • Funding decisions announced – Late April/Early May

RFPs will be processed using Survey Monkey Apply (SMApply) again this year. There are no major changes other than those related to the short-term training - a new priority for SWP.

  • Career Education SharePoint site 
    As you may have heard, CCSF is moving toward using SharePoint as an “Intranet” - a platform for sharing files, forms, and other information. SharePoint will replace the use of the archived CCSF website and looking for documents on multiple webpages. The Workforce Team has created the Career Education SharePoint communication site as a resource for faculty and staff to find and share documents related to CCSF Career Education. The new SharePoint site includes the following Documents folders:

    -Advisory Committees
    -Marketing & Social Media
    -Meeting Archives
    -Perkins and SWP Resources
    -Professional Development
    -Work Experience Resources

    Career Education SharePoint site
    Follow the site to get updates in your newsfeed.

    We invite you to browse the Career Education SharePoint site to find documents we commonly use. Please let us know if you have any feedback.
