Event description

Description

The Iowa Department of Education, in support of the Future Ready Iowa Initiative, is parterning with the Iowa Laborer’s Education and Training Trust Fund, Iowa State Building & Construction Trades Council, National Association of Women in Construction, and Home Builders Association of Iowa to develop promotional materials to highlight a wide range of exciting and fulfilling careers offered in the Building Trades industry in Iowa.

Employers from this and supporting industries (residential, commercial, industrial, infrastructure, etc…) are invited to participate in this employer-only focus group opportunity to review and discuss proposed statewide career awareness materials, which will include not only descriptions of various positions, but also career pathways clearly showing how to enter and advance through a wide range of these exciting and fulfilling careers in Iowa.

Additional focus groups are being held in Storm Lake, Des Moines, Cedar Falls, and Dubuque before a final product is set for unveiling and release in July. Similar projects were completed for the Health Science, Energy/Utilities, and Advanced Manufacturing industries and can be downloaded at SectorPartnerhips.EducateIowa.gov. Contact Joe.Collins@iowa.gov for additional information about this project and to offer any feedback if unable to attend.
