Education Credentials and High-Paying Careers through Registered Apprenticeship

November 9, 2016

Webinar: 2:30-3:30pm ET

Community colleges across the nation are partnering with the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) and employers in workforce training innovation. This webinar brings together USDOL’s Office of Apprenticeship and three ATD members to spotlight innovations in Registered Apprenticeship (RA), which is a quickly expanding workforce training program across the country. RA combines paid on-the-job training and classroom instruction, providing individuals with a career pathway, and the workforce with a pipeline of highly-skilled workers. The USDOL’s Office of Apprenticeship is collaborating with 260 community colleges and state, regional, and national organizations in its Registered Apprenticeship College Consortium (RACC), a network of RA programs and colleges that are in agreement to provide college credit for RA. USDOL will speak to its recent RA funding and programming expansion efforts, which include community colleges: $175 million awarded for the American Apprenticeship Initiative in 2015 and $90 million appropriated for the 2016 fiscal year budget. ATD community college members who are also RACC members come together to share how they are expanding RA programs to attract a new pool of degree seekers at their institutions.
