About this event


We will introduce the new strategy as we generate  and explore new ideas to encourage the growth of skilled workers in the underserved communities. You will be encouraged to volunteer your explorations as an integral part of achieving the common goal: To bridge the divide and reduce the hardship in the rural areas:

The "Earn to Learn" strategy is a multifaceted approach aimed at providing individuals from underserved communities with the opportunity to fund their apprenticeships through a combination of earning income and accessing various financial support mechanisms. This strategy recognizes that apprenticeships can be a valuable pathway to skill development and sustainable employment, but financial barriers often hinder participation from disadvantaged individuals. The goal is to empower these communities by creating a sustainable model for funding apprenticeships, thereby increasing access to these valuable learning opportunities.
