PATH offers employers access to their most valuable need; people. PATH is closing the skills gap often encountered when hiring through workforce development. Our students receive workforce education and training which provides them with the skills and training necessary to be ready to enter the workforce. Below you will find a list of frequently asked questions to help you decide if PATH is the partner for you.
Who are PATH students?
PATH is for students of all ages and backgrounds. PATH specifically targets individuals who lost their job overseas, the unemployed or underemployed, veterans, workforce entrants or re-entrants and those in need of improved and enhanced skills. PATH students are dedicated, mature individuals who are serious about their education and career. They are often individuals who work a full-time job during the week, and attend class at night additionally.
How can PATH help my company?
PATH has enrolled over 750 students to date. Those 750 students are ready to work for your company, and immediately impact your productivity. Students are trained in industry best practices, and on state-of-the-art equipment. During their time in the PATH program, students learn soft skills that are so vital to your company, and learn the skills of their selected field from industry professionals who are in tune with your company’s needs. PATH offers a vital asset to companies, with a continuous pipeline of trained, motivated employees to fit your hiring needs.
