EVENT: Georgia Skills Roadshow, Forsyth County
You may remember us highlighting the first of these events during our February round-up post, well, now it’s time for the second Georgia Skills Roadshow, this time in Forsyth County.
We’ll be heading to Forsyth Central High School in Cumming to help highlight and encourage teenagers to take up work based placements instead of heading off to college straight from High School. The road show is designed to highlight work skills needed now and in the future and to initiate discussion on how businesses and schools can build partnerships that will allow students to get skills-based instruction in real-world settings. The partnerships will also provide businesses with potential employees.
This time, things are a little different though! There’s an international business fair taking place, where business can show students what they have to offer and how they may be able to work with them. A competition between business leaders and World Languages students will also take place along with a presentation of our CTAE programs. Students, parents, teachers, and administrators are all invited, along with those all important international businesses in Forsyth County. We’re hoping this initiative will raise the importance of apprenticeships in Georgia.
So, here’s what you need to know:
When: Monday, April 27, 2015
Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Where: Forsyth Central High School
A luncheon will also be hosted for local business leaders and partner organizations to discuss potential collaborations.
So, what are you waiting for?
We look forward to seeing you there!
