Apprenticeships & On the Job Training
The future of workforce development is work-based learning, a concurrent system of classroom instruction and hands-on experience.
In addition to coordinating applied learning opportunities such as internships, job shadowing, and career exploration, Southwestern Illinois College is a registered sponsor of apprenticeship programs in a variety of occupational sectors through the federal Department of Labor.
On average, employers who utilize registered apprenticeship as a tool for building talent pipelines experience a 47 percent return on investment, through reduced onboarding, better retention, and greater efficiencies achieved through robust training standards.
For information about ways the apprenticeship model can work for you as an employer, contact Workforce Development Director Mike Conley at (618) 641-5193, firstname.lastname@example.org.
