An Approach to Attracting a Diversified & Skilled Workforce                                        Tallac

The water workforce is declining just as our nation is experiencing a middle-skills labor gap. For the past several decades, our nation has operated under the principle that the surest path to labor-market success is through a bachelor’s degree at a four-year university. But today, the demand for middle skilled workers outpaces supply as more and more students pursue higher education. Changing this degree-based mindset begins with recognizing that a skills-based education is essential for success in today's economy. Apprenticeship is a promising approach to develop the water workforce, but how do we encourage and train a new generation to pursue this path? The water operations pre-apprenticeship model can be used to expand access to apprenticeship and diversify the talent pipeline of skilled workers. As part of OWP’s strategic initiative to address the industry-wide need for well-trained entry and mid-level workers in drinking water and wastewater treatment, OWP is partnering with professional and educational organizations to assist in creating standardized educational programs related to water industry workforce development. The School for Integrated Academics and Technologies (SIATech) Charter Schools, California Rural Water Association (CRWA), and OWP are collaborating to develop and deliver a pre-apprenticeship program to train students in the operation and maintenance of water treatment and distribution systems. SIATech is a non-profit network of 23 public charter schools focused on re-engaging disconnected students aged 16–24. The program uses a curriculum that integrates technology with academics and provides the opportunity to earn a high school diploma. It is being piloted at SIATech’s Sacramento campus with plans to offer the program throughout California. Pre-apprenticeship is promising workforce development project to help create a pipeline of qualified operators with documented skills so that employers can find the work-ready employees they need to protect public health and the environment. As part of the pre-apprenticeship framework, these organizations are collaborating to create a work readiness credential indicating mastery of competencies and skills required to successfully operate and maintain water and wastewater treatment facilities. In this session, presenters will outline the elements of a quality pre-apprenticeship program and provide examples of how these are being addressed in the pilot program. The presentation will include discussion about how work readiness credentials can reduce training costs and ensure qualified and competent staff.
