Governor Tom Wolf created PAsmart to help students and workers prepare for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Now this important workforce development initiative has a website –PAsmart.gov. This new, one-stop website consolidates Pennsylvania’s education, training, and job search tools for people pursuing an education or career in the commonwealth.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for Pennsylvanians at every stage of their education and career to access the resources they need to be successful,” Gov. Wolf said. “This new website complements PAsmart’s strategic funding investments and provides students, jobseekers, and current workers access to a wide variety of STEM education, training, and apprenticeship resources.”
Some highlights of PAsmart.gov include resources to:
- Find training and apprenticeship programs in the state
- Explore career and degree program options from among 250 Pennsylvania post-secondary institutions, including resources for adult and returning students and veterans
- Discover new career paths, including a robust job search tool
- “Our commonwealth is on a comeback and I want to bring students, workers, educators and businesses together like never before to create the best workforce in the nation,” said Governor Wolf. “This website is another example of how we can provide up-to-date information and resources to remain focused on educating and training people for good jobs in the commonwealth.”Governor Wolf unveiled the State Workforce, Education and Accountability Program (SWEAP) in his 2019-20 budget on Tuesday to provide more opportunities for Pennsylvanians from birth to retirement. The plan expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and partners with the private sector.
