Work-and-Learn Report Focuses On Regional Improvement

July 5, 2017

A report identifying effective work-and-learn program characteristics was recently completed and presented to northeast Indiana stakeholders by Indianapolis consultant Matt Fleck. 

The report was made possible by a state grant given the Region 3 Works Council and matching assistance through the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership.  Northeast Indiana Works worked with Fleck to develop the scope of project.

Work-and-learn programs can include internships, pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships. Fleck researched effective work-and-learn programs nationally, recommended criteria for assessing the success of work-and-learn programs, and suggested action steps northeast Indiana can take to improve regional work-and-learn programs. 

The recorded webinar can be accessed at:

WorkOne Northeast gave me a chance to start over in a new career, even at my age. Through education and training, I’m learning an in-demand trade as a CNC machinist at Greatbatch Medical and making a living wage at the same time. Thank you WorkOne for giving me the chance to show the world that old dogs can learn new tricks.
