The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment, and Training Administration (ETA) and industry partners formed the Industry Competency Model Initiative. They collaborated on the Competency Model Clearinghouse website to provide the workforce development system with resources and tools to understand, develop, and use competency models. The competency models are designed to be dynamic, responding to changes in workforce needs over time. The ETA updated the building blocks model in 2014 to be sure it reflected the current foundational knowledge and skills needed by the workforce. Developers incorporated competencies from the Department of Education’s Employability Skills Framework and the National Network of Business and Industry Association’s Common Employability Skills. In 2017, they revised the model again to include foundational workplace health and safety skills found in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Heath’s Safe.Skilled.Ready Workforce Program.
