Finding and keeping employees can be a challenge, but apprenticeship gives businesses the opportunity to connect with professional individuals who are advancing in their careers. Northcentral Technical College (NTC) will host a free information session for area employers who are interested in learning how apprenticeship programs can benefit businesses. The Grow Your Workforce Through Apprenticeship event will be held at NTC’s Wausau campus on Tuesday, November 12 from 7:15 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and light breakfast will be provided.

Attend to hear area employers share best practices for implementing apprenticeship programs at their business during an employer panel. Learn about Youth Apprenticeship, Registered Apprenticeship and various ways that they can be implemented as an internal career ladder to promote current or new employees. Steve Laesch, Department of Workforce Development Deputy Administrator of Employment and Training will deliver the keynote address.
