Welding N.O.W. is made possible through a US Department of Labor Grant as a jobs driven training program. The Welding N.O.W. supports Lakeland with funding to purchase additional welding equipment and supplies; critically review and revise our curriculum in consultation with area employers, and finally to provide one to one assistance to students to address barriers which may interfere with a student's academic and career success - and to assist with job placement. There is a research component to this funding which is the reason for asking for demographic and employment information. Researchers from New Growth will contact a sample of program participants following completion of your studies. The Department of Labor will evaluate the success of this model in order to be considered for replication in other colleges and other industries.
