Forsyth Tech Recognized as 2022 Outstanding Consortium Member by Apprenticeship NC
Forsyth Tech was recognized as the 2022 Outstanding Consortium Member by Apprenticeship NC during the Apprenticeship NC Annual Conference in March for its Learn and Earn Apprenticeship Program, also known as LEAP.
LEAP at Forsyth Tech enables students to earn a degree at Forsyth Tech while working in the industry they are studying. The two-to-three year program has many benefits, including paid time away from work to attend class, increased pay as skills are learned, possible tuition waivers, grants and other funding, and valuable time with a mentor at their workplace.
There are currently more than 25 employer partners in a wide variety of industries. Employer partners include Pepsi Bottling Ventures, Progress Rail, Siemens Energy and Zirrus.
Danielle Rose, Director of Experiential Learning at Forsyth Tech, said, “It was an honor to be recognized by Apprenticeship NC! We are proud of what our apprentices have achieved, and can’t wait to help more students earn the skills needed for a job with family-sustaining wages.”
