Workforce Solutions works closely with industry to determine job opportunities available in the region and builds programs to train students specifically for those jobs. With the billions of dollars of industrial expansions in Southwest Louisiana, many industrial crafts are in high demand and SOWELA is offering workforce development programs to help meet that demand. These programs are designed to quickly train and provide the skills necessary for these high-demand high-wage jobs. There are also a limited number of scholarships available through the SOWELA foundation and other partners. Be sure to apply today and ask about scholarship opportunities.
Through workforce training, SOWELA plays a critical role in both the state and region’s economic development efforts. Workforce development programming provides a life-long learning partnership between education and industry. It is Workforce Solutions’ goal to ensure this region’s long term vision for economic vitality.
We are currently seeking partners to help us design, develop, and deliver, need based programs. Partnerships can include advisory committees, training and student mentoring initiatives, and equipment donations among other opportunities. If you are interested in partnering with SOWELA or would like information on available partnerships, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (337) 421-6560.
