Iowa Workforce Development Awards Funds to Expand Registered Apprenticeship Opportunities
October 16, 2018
"It is vital that we expose our high school students to different Registered Apprenticeship opportunities as we look to meet our Future Ready Iowa goal. Apprenticeships are a proven solution for training a skilled workforce, and we are committed to growing opportunities in healthcare and advanced manufacturing - areas in Iowa where we need more trained workers. I strongly encourage schools and organizations to submit proposals to receive the remaining funds as we want to make sure we can award all of it here in Iowa," -Beth Townsend, Director of Iowa Workforce Development. The graph is a slide from Beth Townsend's presentation at the Iowa Ideas Conference last month in Cedar Rapids.

Iowa Workforce Development invites organizations to submit funding requests for these areas: Quality Pre-Apprenticeship; High School Registered Apprenticeship; Healthcare Sector Registered Apprenticeship; Advanced Manufacturing Sector Registered Apprenticeship; and Pilot Quality Pre-Apprenticeship Program.

Submission deadline is 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26. The guidelines for submitting a proposal is available online at:
