Statement from System President Foy on Governor Evers’ investment in Southwest Tech's workforce innovation
The Wisconsin Technical College System thanks Governor Evers, Secretary Hughes and Secretary Pechacek for the $2.9 million investment in workforce innovation at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College. WTCS colleges continually work to directly address the needs of employers in their communities by providing a highly skilled workforce.
Southwest Tech will use the $2.9 million for the Advance Southwest Wisconsin program designed to help businesses train, hire and promote workers over three years through custom upskill training, advanced technology expertise and targeted employee support.
WTCS appreciates the work Southwest Tech plans to do, in conjunction with their community partners, to advance employee training throughout their region.
This announcement comes on top of the $16.5 investment Governor Evers announced earlier this week for innovative projects at Lakeshore Technical College, Nicolet College, Northcentral Technical College and Northwood Tech.
