The Career Connect Washington Progress Report was submitted earlier this month on behalf of the Career Connected Learning Cross Agency Work Group to Governor Inslee and the Washington State Legislature in fulfillment of ESS HB 2158, passed in the 2019 Legislative Session.
For the Puget Sound region overall, 287 students under the age of 30 have enrolled in a Career Launch Non-RA program and 5,090 students under the age of 30 have enrolled in a Registered Apprenticeship
in the region.
There is strong representation for nearly all racial groups for enrollment in either one or both types of Career Launch programs; exceptions include needing to recruit more Asian students to enroll in Registered Apprenticeships and more Latinx and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students to enroll in Career Launch Non-RA.
There are several new programs available:
• Cyber Security Technician Program
• Extended Reality Program
• Heavy Equipment/Machining Career Prep
• Supply Chain & Logistics Registered Apprenticeship
• Healthcare Career Explore
• Biotechnology Career Launch
