New website promotes Registered Apprenticeships in Iowa
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
A new website launched encourages Iowa employers and job seekers to explore Registered Apprenticeship opportunities.
Earnandlearniowa.gov focuses on helping employers understand how a Registered Apprenticeship Program works, the value it brings to their business and the resources available to help them set up a Registered Apprenticeship Program. Job seekers can learn why a Registered Apprenticeship leads to a successful career.
Gov. Kim Reynolds was appointed to President Trump’s Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion last fall. She says the Registered Apprenticeship model is a proven solution for recruiting, training and retaining world-class talent in Iowa. Growing Registered Apprenticeship opportunities will also help Iowa reach its Future Ready Iowa goal of 70 percent of the workforce having education or training beyond high school by 2025.
