Description

Dear Friends and Leaders,

Join the Northwestern Illinois Building Trades at the 2018 Building Trades Expo. Over the past 9 years, the Northwestern Illinois Building Trades have hosted over 6,000 students from the area to partake in hands-on experiences and demonstrations involving the 17 construction apprenticeship programs and schools.

Recently, our region has taken focus on skills training in the workplace, The Northwestern Illinois Building Trades are inviting business leaders, workforce development professionals, and community members to take action and to experience some of the world’s most developed and innovative apprenticeship programs. The apprenticeship and skills training provided is known to be highly effective creating a skilled workforce that is efficient and productive. For over 150 years these programs have been designed to respond to shifting workplace trends and to construct the most sustainable end products for businesses and community. This program will allow you and your company to learn how to strengthen the skills that each employee needs to improve, respective to your industry. We have experienced that this skills development structure brings all employees and members to a higher level so they all have the highest levels of understanding and the most up-to-date skills and knowledge.

Regionally, there are several conversations that advocate for the workforce industry and developing the professional capacity of workforce professionals seeking the highest standards of excellence in credentialing, applied learning opportunities, and cutting-edge tools to excel in serving job seekers and business. This opportunity lends itself as an educational opportunity for our community, whether an individual is looking to engage in a career or a business is looking to replicate or mirror some of the techniques and structure of a registered apprenticeship program.

This year we are inviting you or a representative from your company to be paired with a community member and a group of 10 students. This experience will give you the opportunity to connect with apprenticeship program experts, students interested in hands-on employment, and will shed light on desired outcomes relating to skilled workforces. We hope that you will join us this February 13th, 14th, or 15th at the Carpenter’s Training Center located at 1117 Tebala Blvd, Rockford, IL 61108.

Warm Regards,

Jake Castanza, Executive Director
