Who knew that the events of 2020 would have taught me that I’m a “glass half full” kind of person? I say that because I am super excited to kick off this New Year!
Not only because the pandemic turned the world upside down without warning and I am ready to move past it, but also because of the opportunities that have evolved out of the massive disruption caused by the statewide shutdown.
While CTE and Adult Education initiatives were a high priority before the pandemic, the resulting shutdown has made their importance crystal clear. I believe I said it in a previous newsletter…
People need to get back to work.
And to do that, they need to be provided with educational opportunities to help them reach that goal. That said, I am beyond thrilled to share with you the new training opportunities developed by the team at Orange Technical
OTC’s Skills-Based Training courses are
short-term in nature and designed to
capitalize and build on the #EssentialPotential our students already possess. These courses were planned in partnership with government, business, and industry partners
and lead to viable employment opportunities in Central Florida. We worked with CareerSource Central Florida, the Orlando Economic Partnership, and the Orange County Government to identify the jobs employers need to fill right now:
- Advanced Welding & Welding Assistant
- Construction Basics
- CNC Machining
- Fluid/Power Hydraulics
- Long-term Care CNA
- Advanced Manufacturing
- Microsoft Office Basics
So if you or your company are in need of additional staff in these fields or if you know someone interested in up-skilling or re-skilling to get back to work, let me know. My team at OTC is standing by to provide the needed
registration and enrollment support. We’re here to help. https://orangete.ch/skills-based-training
