CWA and Safal Partners are proud to announce the Center of Excellence for Strategic Partnership’s Regional Sessions.

You and your partners are invited to attend one of our upcoming regional sessions to explore the following:

“Imagine if California’s Registered Apprenticeship system (i.e. industry, workforce, education) expanded and modernized to provide career-long relationships that keep ALL Californians at the cutting edge of tech, skills, knowledge, and abilities. What would that look like?”

Significant investments have been made and initiatives undertaken over the last seven years to advance registered apprenticeship as a workforce development tool for employers statewide. We invite you to bring a team of stakeholders to our upcoming regional meetings to find out what state and local leaders are doing to develop strategic partnerships and improve system alignment around apprenticeship.

We kicked off the Center’s work recently at WORKCON, and nearly 200 individuals from workforce, industry, education and government joined our workshop and panel sessions over the course of the two days. The next step is taking those conversations and “Strategic Doing” sessions into the field to engage organizations like yours.

The goal of the these meetings is to help participants develop strategic partnerships across workforce, industry, education, community-based organizations, and local government; and jointly develop implementable plans for accelerating apprenticeship adoption and improving system alignment at the state and local level.

Please invite your partners (i.e. community colleges, workforce boards, industry, community organizations) to join you and make this a work group time for your organization to build upon your local apprenticeship efforts so far. You will be able to sign up as a team by selecting your local workforce development board for your team.

The sessions will occur in Sacramento, Clovis and Southern California. Please register for the regional session that best meets your geographical need. Sessions run from 8:00am to 12:00pm each day. See below for the dates and locations:
