C11 - Memorandum of Understanding with Electrical Training Alliance of Jacksonville (ETA JAX)

The MOU with ETA JAX outlines a new opportunity for 12-18 seniors at Oakleaf High School where they will take the ETA JAX pre-apprenticeship online course and gain hands-on experience at the ETA JAX facility.  

Gap Analysis

Electrical Training Alliance (ETA) JAX operates an electrical apprenticeship program whose largest employer is Miller Electric.  OHS will offer 1 class period for 12-18 seniors to take the online training modules from ETA Jax.  ETA JAX will also host students for field trips at their facility where they will provide hands-on electrical training.  Like many industrries in our region, the construction industry has a tremendous amount of work to be completed, but they are experiencing a workforce shortage.  This program will give students the opportunity to get a head start in a high-skill, high-wage, high-demand career with no college debt.   

Previous Outcomes

N/A - This will be the first time Clay County CTE has partnered with ETA JAX for a pre-apprenticeship program.  

Expected Outcomes

12-18 OHS seniors will complete the Electrical Training Alliance JAX pre-apprenticeship course.  Students will develop workforce skills and become more prepared for college and careers.  

Strategic Plan Goal

Strategy 1.3: Prepare all students to be full option graduates who are prepared for college, eligible to enlist in military services, or able to compete in the workforce.
