One of the most difficult challenges that companies face today is the lack of a highly skilled and professional labor pool. If your company is battling similar issues why not consider an Apprenticeship?
Growing your workforce from within can be an effective and cost-efficient way to establish a pool of well qualified workers.
The types of industries successfully using apprenticeships to develop and build their workforce has changed drastically over the past 50 years. Which means Apprenticeships are no longer limited to traditional trades, but now it is a viable workforce development tool in a wide variety of occupations.
Apprenticeship programs can be found in:
- Advanced manufacturing
- Information Technology
Not only will your investment yield highly qualified employees, but your company could also benefit from a tax break!
Apprenticeship Carolina™ works to ensure all employers in South Carolina have access to the information and technical assistance they need to create demand-driven registered apprenticeship programs. As part of the SC Technical College system, Apprenticeship Carolina works directly with Spartanburg Community College to register programs within the college service area.
Registered apprenticeship provides employers with the unique opportunity to grow their own workforce by formalizing the three components of a registered program: on-the-job training, job related education and a scalable wage progression. Employees who complete apprenticeship programs receive a credential from the Department of Labor in their particular occupation. Employers who register programs are eligible to receive a $1,000 per registered apprentice SC state tax credit.
