President Barack Obama later today will announce efforts to broaden job training in the country, including $175 million in federal grants for apprenticeship programs and promoting broader access to community colleges.
Obama is scheduled to make the announcement at Macomb Community College in Warren, Mich. The college is where Obama in July 2009 proposed a $12 billion initiative to encourage more community college graduates who would be educated and trained for the new jobs of the changing economy.
Obama returns to the college today to announce the Labor Department will award $175 million in American Apprenticeship Grants to programs that will help and hire 34,000 new apprentices in “high-growth” and “high-tech” industries such as information technology, energy and health care over the next five years. Obama is also scheduled to announce a program to promote the importance of community college, in addition to the creation of the College Promise Advisory Board. The board, led by Dr. Jill Biden, an educator and the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, is tasked with promoting efforts to make a two-year community college education free for responsible students. Obama today is also scheduled to release a White House report on progress toward making community college free of charge.
Obama's announcement follows up on the July 2014 signing into law of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The purpose of that legislation is to streamline job training programs.
