The New Evolution of Apprenticeship


Apprenticeship is no longer just limited to traditional trades. It is a viable workforce development tool in a wide variety of occupations.

Apprenticeship has truly evolved.

The concept behind apprenticeship hasn't changed all that much, but the types of industries successfully using apprenticeship to develop and build their workforce has changed drastically over the past 50 years.

Today, apprenticeship programs can be found in such industries as advanced manufacturing, information technology, energy, tourism, transportation and logistics as well as healthcare, just to name a few.
