SCC Hosting an Apprenticeship Interest Night
Tuesday, November 9th, 2021
Southeastern Community College is hosting an Interest Night for National Apprenticeship Week – We invite students, parents, and friends to celebrate the U.S. Department of Labor’s seventh annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW).
National Apprenticeship Interest Night
Where: Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, SCC
When: Tuesday, November 16
Time: 6:00 p.m.
NAW was established by the U.S. Department of Labor to celebrate the significant impact Registered Apprenticeship programs have had in rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities. Hundreds of NAW events and activities will be taking place all over the country, including open houses, skill competitions, community forums, apprentice graduations, business open houses, high school and college career fairs, apprenticeship signing days, industry roundtable events, diversity and inclusion dialogues, and more.
“Registered Apprenticeship is a proven way for community members to obtain pathways to secure, high-paying careers in healthcare, engineering, education and more,” said Denise Young, Apprenticeship Coordinator at SCC. “We are proud to support National Apprenticeship Week and to showcase the impact apprenticeships have on building the workforce in Columbus County.”
Southeastern Community College is launching an Apprenticeship Program in Spring 2022. SCC students are preparing for this guided pathway through Pathway to Employment. A course designed to prepare students to gain employment skills.
NAW gives employers, including sponsors and providers, the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities, and apprentices so that career seekers can learn more about the benefits of Registered Apprenticeship and the programs that are available in their communities. During NAW events, apprentices have a platform to share their apprenticeship experience and how it has transformed their lives. For more information, visit apprenticeship.gov/NAW.
