The U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship (OA) has embarked on partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) to create apprenticeship opportunities that generate career access for students. These “earn and learn" experiences in high-skilled occupations focus on high demand industries including: Finance, Healthcare, IT, Advanced Manufacturing and other STEM related career path ways. Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally-recognized credential. Through an apprenticeship program, individuals can obtain paid, relevant workplace experience while acquiring the skills and credentials that employers value. 94% of apprentices who complete an apprenticeship retain employment, with an average annual salary of $70,000. Join us for this webinar to learn more about the benefits of apprenticeship for current Minority Servicing Institutions' students, recent MSI alumni and the role of MSIs in this initiative.
