Statement from System President Foy on Governor Evers’ investment in Fox Valley Technical College’s workforce innovation
The Wisconsin Technical College System thanks Governor Evers, Secretary Hughes and Secretary Pechacek for the $3.5 million investment in workforce innovation at Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) through a partnership with Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin. WTCS colleges work closely with community-based organizations and employers in their areas to determine employer needs and provide a highly skilled workforce.
Fox Valley Technical College will use the $3.5 million to prepare over 200 trainers at FVTC to use a trauma-informed approach to workforce education and services. FVTC’s career pathways program will provide a turnaround time of one year or less to a family-sustaining career path.
WTCS appreciates the work FVTC plans to do, in conjunction with their community partners, to advance workforce education and services throughout their region.
Over the last two weeks, Governor Evers has announced workforce innovation investments for projects at Lakeshore Technical College, Northcentral Technical College, Nicolet College, Northwood Tech, Southwest Tech and now Fox Valley Technical College.
