New Jersey Offering Training Grants For Pre-Apprenticeships
(TRENTON, NEW JERSEY) - In an effort to bolster the state workforce amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development will provide $2 million in grant funding through the Pre-Apprenticeship in Career Education (PACE) Training Program.
These programs provide education and training to prepare participants for placement into a Registered Apprenticeship Program, into a post-secondary college or occupation-specific career training program, or into the workforce.
“Navigating through the pandemic and emerging stronger requires concerted action to support New Jersey Workers as they adapt to the changes brought by COVID-19,” said Governor Phil Murphy, adding the investment in workforce training will provide New Jersey Workers "a pathway to long-term, good-paying jobs as we look toward economic recovery.”
New Jersey Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship will host remote technical assistance workshops March 9th and 16th for eligible programs.
