Mechatronics Apprenticeship

TalentGro is partnering with Motlow State College in Tennessee for the Governor’s Investment in Vocational Education (GIVE) grant project. The grant budget will provide funding toward 10 Mechatronic apprenticeship opportunities and 3 IT apprenticeships.

These grant funds will include $10/hour, for a total of 1800 hours per apprentice, which can be used toward the cost of apprentice wages and intermediary services on behalf of the industry partner. These apprenticeships will begin in February of 2021.

“Our cultural and economic landscape is changing as we have become a high-tech society and culture. We want to give our students the skills necessary for a successful high-tech future,” said Donald Choate, Motlow emerging technology liaison and trainer for Motlow State.
