An apprenticeship is all about transferring a student’s skillset from the classroom to industry.

The earn and learn model

Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and an industry-recognized credential.

How do apprenticeships work?

In an apprenticeship, employers structure a career pathway by combining education with paid on-the-job training, allowing students to earn while learning. In return for genuine effort, apprentices receive regular salary increases and an industry recognized certification upon program completion.
