5. Norfolk Iron & Metal Signs First Apprenticeship in Emporia

Norfolk Iron & Metal has partnered with SouthEast KANSASWORKS to utilize the Kansas Registered Apprenticeship Program and signed the first apprenticeship into the program in Emporia. Through this program, Norfolk Iron & Metal will receive up to a $3,000 reimbursement for related technical training in order to train a new Shipping & Receiving Clerk.

The Kansas Registered Apprenticeship Program balances a unique partnership between job seekers and employers. The program incorporates classroom studies through On-the-Job Training, supervised by a skilled employee. The customizable program improves the skills and competencies of apprentices, in turn, leading to their higher productivity rate.

There are currently over 1,300 different occupations that qualify for Registered Apprenticeship. If you own a business, having an apprenticeship helps build a qualified workforce with the exact skill needed to fill your job openings and reduce employee turnover.

If you have questions about the Kansas Registered Apprenticeship Program or would like to take advantage of this service, contact Southeast KANSASWORKS in Emporia, Kansas at 620-342-3355 or stop by the office at 215 W. 6th Ave Suite 107.
