Is Always Better

Apprenticeship creates a bond of loyalty between the employee and employer that is built-in instead of developing over a long time. Apprenticeship is a high-quality career pathway driven by growing and emerging industries. Registered Apprenticeship allows employers to build their own future workforce. Apprenticeship includes:

Develop Greater Return on Investment

Apprentices are employees with a vision for their future at your company. As paid employees with a learning track, apprentices continue to improve their ROI-producing skills.

On-the-Job Learning

Through structured learning in a work environment, apprentices develop real skills that will benefit the company.

Classroom Learning

Improve your apprentice’s job-related skills through education in a classroom setting.

Mentorship

Allow your apprentices to learn from your most seasoned and skilled employees.

Three Models of

Registered Apprenticeship

Registered Apprenticeships can be delivered using three different models of evaluating success:

01 Time-Based

In this model, each job task must be performed for a set number of hours, indicating that an apprentice has practiced enough to have mastered the task. Assigning blocks of hours ensures that the apprentice will spend enough time on the job to observe anomalies that come with the trade.

02

Competency-Based

In the competency-based model, apprentices must demonstrate their competence in each job skill in order to complete their apprenticeship. Competency is evaluated by the assigned mentor, and this model allows apprentices to learn job skills flexibly according to their learning pace.

03 Hybrid

In a hybrid model, both competence and time are used as measures of success. In this model, an employer outlines the maximum amount of time that is appropriate to develop each competency.

Implementing a

Registered Apprenticeship

There are several models of implementing a Registered Apprenticeship that are recognized by the Department of Labor. These include:

Traditional

Apprentices are full-time employees and attend related classes part-time.

Front-Loaded

Apprentices receive all related technical instruction before beginning on-the-job learning.

Intermittent

A combination of full-time work and full-time school, apprentices alternate between working full time and learning full time on a schedule set by the employer.
