Happy National Apprenticeship week!  This week is all about celebrating and diving deeper into apprenticeships, a form of work-based learning & post-secondary education that provides an integral talent pipeline addressing some of our most pressing workforce challenges.

Did you know that 93% of apprentices continue employment after they’ve completed their apprenticeship program?

These programs have also been shown to improve productivity and profitability, reduce turnover, and create a highly skilled workforce.

Even more, offering apprenticeships at the high school level allows you to build connections and vet potential employees early on, develop the skills your company needs most, and secure your ideal future workforce – whether you’re looking 5 months ahead or 5 years ahead.
