Workforce Solutions spreads the word about apprenticeships

Monday, September 12, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

With more than $500,000 in grants in hand, Workforce Solutions Capital Area is looking to expand apprenticeship programs in the area. On Tuesday, Sept. 13, Workforce Solutions will be holding an event to let the public know about apprenticeship grant opportunities aimed at helping Travis County residents earn more through job training and certification. The opportunities have been funded through a mix of private and public grants, with enrollment for technology and health care apprenticeships currently underway. (Manufacturing apprenticeships are slated to open in January 2023.) Those wanting to learn more about the apprenticeships can attend Tuesday’s event or apply online. “We are grateful for the ongoing support from our community, which allows us to offer these apprenticeship programs and provide much-needed opportunities to grow our region’s manufacturing, technology and health care industries,” Tamara Atkinson, CEO of Workforce Solutions Capital Area, said in a statement to the press. “Programs like these allow for the development of a highly skilled workforce, provide residents with the tools they need to get hired for high-paying jobs, and support employers with a diverse and talented applicant pool from which to recruit.”
