Gov. Bevin unveils apprenticeship aimed at bringing manufacturing jobs to Kentucky
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin is rolling out a plan to put the state on the map as the number one spot in North America for manufacturing.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin is rolling out a plan to put the state on the map as the number one spot in North America for manufacturing.
Gov. Bevin announced a new apprenticeship program Wednesday called "Kentucky Trained, Kentucky Built".
One way to help make Kentucky a destination for manufacturing is giving people on-the-job training through apprenticeships.
There are already hundreds of business partners across the state, including this manufacturer in Shelby County. The hope is to get more employers on board and put more people to work.
"We want this to be not just kids coming out of high school, but people returning to the work force or have been laid off in one industry coming into another," Gov. Bevin said. "How do they find the ability to get skills and training? It's also for people coming out of our prison system."
