WorkAdvance by the Numbers

Jul 9, 2024

The WorkAdvance program is short term and open to anyone looking for a springboard into an entry level position in the manufacturing sector that has no prerequisites and potential for growth. The program takes many shapes and forms depending on the employers involved or the skills being taught, but typically involves two to three weeks of training, full time, in a technical skill. Additionally, WorkAdvance also includes career readiness workshops within that time and always finishes with job placement services and resources.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have accomplished through WorkAdvance to date:

  • Program Completion Rate: 90%
  • Total Program Completers: 36
  • Total Completers Placed with Manufacturers: 27
  • Placement Rate within 30 days of completion: 90%
  • 30 Days of Employment Retention Rate: 81%
  • Manufacturing Employers Served: 10
