AIKEN – The Lower Savannah Council of Governments has entered into collaborative relationships with Denmark Technical College, Aiken Technical College and Orangeburg–Calhoun Technical College to expand funding availability for Registered Apprenticeships throughout the Lower Savannah Workforce Development Area.
All interested employers are encourage to inquire into these apprenticeship opportunities.
“The one thing we hear from businesses on a regular basis is that they cannot find the technical expertise needed for their organizations to grow” says André Anderson, Workforce Development administrator at LSCOG. “These apprenticeship initiatives provide an excellent opportunity to increase that technical expertise from within their own ranks."
It is part of the long range plan of LSCOG in support of employers and employment training for the Lower Savannah region.
“This type of collaboration between the technical colleges and the LSCOG is exactly the forward-thinking this community needs. Initiatives like this one will create pathways for people in our community to a better quality of life.
"Denmark Technical College looks forward to creating and developing more Workforce Development opportunities with local industry and organizations like the LSCOG,” said Dr. Christopher Hall, Denmark Tech president.
LSCOG serves governments in Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun and Orangeburg counties.
