The earn and learn model
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.
Apprenticeships can be found in all industries, such as building trades, clean energy, cybersecurity, healthcare, information technology, financial services, childcare, transportation, engineering, and advanced manufacturing.
