Lakewood, N.M. — Career Academies, which opened in 2019, is the latest in a growing industry of career schools and training programs that promise to help people get their careers back on track.
The companies say they offer quality, flexible learning environments that will allow graduates to continue their education while helping them find jobs in fields such as finance, law, education, business, management, and technology.
The company’s goal is to create the largest employer of women in America by 2019.
The goal is a goal that many of the companies say is achievable with the help of federal and state policies and investments that aim to increase women’s access to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) jobs.
These programs offer a range of training, education and employment options to help women and their children advance their career.
Career Acadums began offering full-time jobs in the United States in 2011, and they have since expanded to include part-time programs, temporary work, and full-day programs.
There are more than 5,000 career acadums and about 8,000 full- and part-day career programs in the country, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
The National Association of Career and Technical Education (NACTE) and the Career Institute of the Pacific Northwest (CITP) offer similar programs.
NACTE and the CITP have partnered to offer an online portal to recruit and train more than 2,200 new careers at its schools.
CITp’s Career Academy offers programs in finance, information technology, and healthcare.
The Career Institute offers programs for healthcare workers, legal assistants, and construction workers.
The two companies have also partnered to launch the Career Education Exchange, a platform to connect women and men interested in careers with careers resources.
These partnerships are helping to make career acadues more accessible to more women, said Sarah Mims, NACNE president and CEO.
“There are more women than ever, but they are still not represented in the workforce,” Mims said.
“We want to make it easier for women to reach the top of the career ladder and the highest levels of education.
The careers we are offering are designed to meet their specific needs.”
The Career Academy program at Lakewood Career Academy opened in 2017, and it’s now located in Lakewood’s former city of Lakewood.
Its goal is for the academy to enroll more than 600 students over the next five years.
The academy’s focus on diversity is key, said Lakewood Academy Director of Campus Programs and Development Amy Williams.
“In order to create a diverse student body, we have to create spaces where they can be their authentic selves,” she said.
For example, Lakewood graduates of the 2018-2019 school year were assigned to teams of four.
The students were encouraged to work independently and to seek out other opportunities.
In 2019, the team also included three women and one man.
“The diversity that is being created is critical for the growth of our academy, and this is a very powerful example of that,” Williams said.
In 2017, the academy was the first to offer full- or part-days courses in financial literacy, health care and life skills, which include health, human development, and career.
The full-days program started at Lakeview Career Academy in 2019 and now offers courses in finance and health care.
Lakeview also offered a summer program that was open to students in 2019.
“They were given a great opportunity to learn how to earn a degree at Lake View,” said Lakeview Academy Director Mary Williams.
The 2018-19 school year also included a program in healthcare and career, and the 2019-20 school year included a full- days program in career.
“Lakeview’s program in 2018 had about 70 students, and our program has grown to about 150,” Williams explained.
“To keep the students engaged and involved, the programs in 2018 and 2019 included team challenges.
The teams had to come up with a solution and work through the challenge with one another.”
Lakeview’s first full- day program in 2019 focused on health and careers.
“This was a very challenging year for our students and their learning,” Williams noted.
The next full- Day program in Lakeview offered a team challenge.
“Our first program was in 2018, and we had a great experience with the students,” Williams recalled.
“It was really a great learning experience for all the students.”
Lakewood has partnered with Career Institute, CITI, and NACLETE, and has hired over 200 employees to work in the career academy business.
Lakewood also partnered with the Uptown Community College District to expand its career center.
Lakewoods new full-year program is also expected to include a community center where students can come to learn about career skills and earn certificates, Williams said, and help with recruitment of new students.
Lake View Career Academy will begin offering full days in 2018.
“By 2019, we want to
