Dream Earn and Learn Team
LCCC's Earn and Learn partnership with University Hospitals lets nursing students like Ashlee Pollock work full-time while attending college. In the program, current UH employees working as patient care nursing assistants (PCNA) earn the licensed practical nurse (LPN) credential.
LCCC has engaged with local employers to offer paid work-based learning that provides full-time or part-time entry-level jobs or internships with businesses that are actively seeking to attract and retain employees.
- Receive hands-on experience and on-the-job training.
- Earn a livable wage while completing your education.
- Pairing of experience and education makes you more desirable to employers.
- Gain early exposure to the hiring process; including resume building, job search skills, interviewing, and employability skills.
Employers can partner with LCCC in an Earn and Learn program to form partnerships to help create a continuous pipeline of skilled employees, lower the time and cost to recruit and retain top talent, support the creation of additional education experience and increase the skill levels of employees, and have the opportunity to hire students into full-time positions at the completion of the program.
Employers can participate in a number of ways:
- Sponsor a student for a paid work-based learning opportunity
- Allow the use of your company logo in candidate recruitment and promotional materials
- Participate on an industry advisory council at LCCC
- Participate in the design of the Earn and Learn program
