The focus of Northeastern Technical College's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is Skills for Student Success. The purpose is to enhance student learning through the emphasis of identified core skills within the college's educational programs and support services. The QEP recognizes that unless NETC ensures its students have a ready skill set that allows them to advance towards program completion, the institution fails to complete the college mission of educating, training, and developing the citizens of Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Dillon counties. Thus, the Quality Enhancement Plan of Skills for Student Success is aligned with the college's mission and its strategic goal of providing quality credit and noncredit educational opportunities and support services. It is focused directly upon enhancing student learning.
