Did you know? Texas offers apprenticeship opportunities available through local Workforce Development Boards. A Workforce Development Board is comprised of locals appointed by elected officials, such as Mayors and County Judges. The Board is responsible for the workforce programs and services in their area. In Texas, 28 local Boards operate over 180 Local Workforce Solutions Offices.
These opportunities can help pay for education costs, transportation, and in some cases, even childcare for upskill programs, such as those for CNAs and CMAs. Because of recent policy changes, Assisted Living communities can now host clinicals for CNA’s, opening the door for these programs to gain traction as part of recruiting efforts.
Reach out to your local Workforce Solutions group near your community to inquire if they have apprenticeship opportunities. Find further information, including links to local Boards, here.
