The Skills Gap is Real
The skills gap is real (1), and finding the right fit for in-demand roles is hitting the Kansas City economy (1). Metropolitan Community College has developed a modern registered apprenticeship (2) program designed to meet the needs of your changing industry. The MCC Apprenticeship Department has multiple resources for apprentices; we can help start a new apprenticeship program, help manage an existing apprenticeship program, and offer resources for people who have been through an apprenticeship program. By developing customized on-the-job training and paralleled coursework designed to meet business needs, apprentices will increasingly be equipped with the skills necessary for retained employment starting day one!
