Recruiting and retaining skilled employees can be challenging. Apprenticeship reduces the need for expensive recruitment programs by creating a flow of candidates who are screened for minimum requirements and trained by CCSF to meet the specific, technical skills needed on the job. The cost of wages for apprentices is less than that for regular employees. Additionally, apprentices who complete a program often feel a commitment to their work and loyalty to their employer.
If you’re interested in apprentices being prepared in our programs or wish to collaborate in the development of a new program to meet your job demands, please contact us.
CCSF Extension provides customized performance-based training, assessment and consulting services to help local employers reach their performance goals. CCSF Extension works closely with employers to identify causes, conditions & barriers of your performance gap, and will tailor specific solutions to close that gap and recover, enhance & improve your competitive advantage.
