Hawkeye Community College Makes National Apprenticeship Week Proclamation

posted on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 in  College News

Hawkeye Community College recognizes the urgent need to prepare and maintain an inclusive, diverse and highly-skilled workforce that is capable of meeting the demands of the industry we serve and fortifying our economy; and

Registered Apprenticeship programs enable employers to develop and train their future workforce while offering career seekers affordable paths to secure high-paying jobs; and

Hawkeye Community College recognizes the role of Registered Apprenticeship in expanding opportunities in our workforce that are inclusive of individuals who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality, thus providing a path for all qualified individuals, including women, youth, people of color, rural communities, justice-involved individuals and individuals with disabilities, to become apprentices and contribute to America’s industries.

We call upon our business partners to recognize the value of Registered Apprenticeships and to promote industry awareness and expansion during the seventh anniversary of National Apprenticeship Week, November 15 through November 21, 2021.
