Make plans to attend the upcoming Apprenticeship Forum on November 17th at the Joplin Public Library to learn how to develop and effectively leverage apprenticeship training opportunities in your area! As businesses continue to experience skill gaps and other mounting training woes, apprenticeship options are well poised to develop the skills and abilities of our communities’ emerging workforces and help meet the training needs of our region’s employers. The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00am.
Learn more about how to develop registered apprenticeship programs with local technical schools, and how to leverage related, short-term options to meet more immediate needs.
Presentations are scheduled from the following speakers:
- Mike Smith, U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship
- Suzanne Richards, Missouri Department of Economic Development
- Dr. Oscar Carter, Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education
The speakers will be followed by a panel of area employers engaged in apprenticeship training options and lunch. A $5.00 registration fee for the forum includes lunch and forum materials. Check-in and networking begin at 9:30am.
