Workforce Training Partnership Creates Same Day Enrollment For Job Seekers.
Program enrollment and funding scholarships available on-site February 22nd
LAS VEGAS – February 22, 2016 – The Culinary Academy of Las Vegas (CALV) is pleased to announce its ability to provide same day job training program enrollment with scholarships available. CALV is partnering with Res. Care; a sister Workforce Connections funding agency, to provide a unique one stop location to support job seekers’ enrollment into one of the 12 job classifications provided at the Academy.
“After analyzing our orientation attendance against the enrollment data we noticed that a number of individuals who attended our Orientation on Mondays were not returning to enroll into our training program.” says Ana Puljic Student Services and Outreach Director. With a continuous need for job applicants from our hotel partners there was a need to find a solution to get more job seekers enrolled into training. This partnership with ResCare will allow job seekers the opportunity to attend today’s orientation and immediately following enroll into our job training program.
“This partnership removes the barrier of a job seeker needing to attend orientation in one location then traveling to a different partner agency location to complete the enrollment process.” says Lynn Hoffman, Project Director ResCare Workforce Services/OneStop Career Center.
Job seekers are strongly encouraged attend the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas’ student orientation TODAY at 10am, doors open at 9:30am. The agency partners expect positive results from this hybrid process and look forward to offering this same opportunity on additional dates in March 2016.
