How Colleges Can Become Registered Apprenticeship Sponsors

October 27, 2016 | Chicago, IL



This free, one-day session will provide colleges with technical assistance on how to become a sponsor of Registered Apprenticeship programs and learn about the benefits. This event aims to help meet the national challenge to double the number of Apprentices over the next five years and ensure students graduate college with in demand skills and the opportunity to gain employment in their field of study. Registered Apprenticeship is also a strategy to help colleges increase student enrollment and improve graduation rates.

This meeting will bring together colleges to develop customized apprenticeship programs that meet workforce needs. Colleges that are current Registered Apprenticeship sponsors will be available to provide assistance and answer your questions.

Colleges at the meeting will be able to kick-start development of an apprenticeship program that can be easily integrated into their career and technical education programs. This event is designed to specifically help colleges rapidly develop their own apprenticeship programs and register the programs as sponsors. Colleges will want to send to the event those individuals who would be directly involved in developing an apprenticeship program.
