I’m a big proponent that talent can come from anywhere, not just college graduates. It’s hard to find talent in our industry so we were delighted when SLO partners offered to help. We liked that they were training people with different types of backgrounds to secure jobs locally – it was ideal.
We’ve been very successful with the candidates we’ve gotten from SLO Partners. The program takes people with the base skills that are needed for an advanced manufacturing career and then exposes them to the terminology and tools needed for a business like us which is exactly what we need.
This program provides students with the skills needed to go straight into the workforce and bring value right off the bat. This fast tracks the on-the-job training process and is a huge benefit to employers. There’s a great need for qualified candidates.
What is Apprenticeship?
Companies like Apple, Adobe and IBM have proven Apprentice programs as an innovative approach for hiring essential workers for in-demand jobs. Now more than ever, Americans need educational options and career pathways which are cost effective and oriented to delivering skilled careers and stable employment. While it is used in traditional industries such as construction and manufacturing, apprenticeship is also instrumental for training and development in growing industries, such as information technology. After an intensive bootcamp, apprentices are hired by employers and receive a paycheck from the first day of work.
All of the apprentices represent a skill set that we have found incredibly hard to find. I commend your program!
