How to launch an apprenticeship program
Monday, November 05, 2018
Trending in training today is an idea that has been around for centuries: apprenticeships.
But today's programs are quite different from their predecessors, which were often informal, low-paying and focused on a small number of skilled trades. Now, we're seeing them pop up in some of the most unlikely places, from fast food to retail, information technology and beyond.
The opportunity to learn on the job, with skilled teachers providing insight, can be an alternative to formal education for many. New high school graduates, displaced workers and veterans are all making use of these programs.
