High school (HS) apprenticeship programs combine work-based, on-the-job learning with relevant technical education in the classroom.
Apprenticeship is a strategy for building a more inclusive economy by
creating affordable, reliable, and equitable pathways from high school to good
careers and college degrees. Our apprenticeship is a structured, work-based
learning program that connects the educational needs of students with the
talent needs of industry.
The work-based training component of apprenticeships provides young
people with the chance to develop job-ready “soft” or generic skills that are as relevant as technical vocational competences. Skills like problem solving, conflict management and entrepreneurship are more effectively developed in workplaces than in off-the-job situations like classrooms or simulated work environments
