Today’s apprenticeship programs aren’t just for trade positions anymore!
Today’s challenges are finding and keeping talented employees. We believe a successful apprenticeship program comes about with the right mixture of education and on-the-job training.
According to the Department of Labor, approximately 150,000 businesses have integrated the apprenticeship model into their talent development strategy.
- 97% of these businesses would recommend apprenticeship programs.
- 91% of students participating in apprenticeship programs stay at their place of employment after the apprenticeship program ends.
What is an apprenticeship program?
An apprenticeship program is a structured “learn and earn” program that combines classroom learning along with structured on-the-job training guided by a mentor. The goal for apprenticeship programs is to provide workers with a set of skills that meet the specific needs of local employers using a flexible learning approach.
Who are apprenticeships geared toward?
Apprenticeship programs are for people of all ages who want to learn by doing! They also earn a salary while they gain real skills and knowledge to obtain a job in their chosen career.
