In

8,900

registered apprentices.

Apprenticeships are a minimum of one (1) year.

What is Apprenticeship?

Definition

3Slide4

Earn-while-you-learn

model of employee

training and development

Offers the universally recognized

journeyworker

credential

Broadly recognized by employers in many occupations, and frequently accepted as credit for prior learning by higher education

institutions

Apprentices are full-time employees – they are not students external to your business or

organization

Apprentices earn a percentage of the journeyworker’s

salary

As

an apprentice completes on-the-job training and related instruction, their wage increases and they provide additional value to the

employer

of their annual salary

150% of their annual salary

Replacing HIGH-LEVEL or highly specialized employees costs 400% of their annual salary

Employee Development

Mythbusters

Apprenticeship is not an

internship

Apprenticeship does not encourage organized labor

unions

Ex. Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).

Apprentices may be new employees, or

current employees you want to develop

Apprenticeship receives significant support from a sponsoring organization for both the employer and the

apprentice

Does apprenticeship encourage organization of labor unions in my business?
