Apprenticeships for Employers



The registered apprenticeship model gives employers an opportunity to build a workforce trained to meet their specific skill needs. Apprenticeships offer a flexible training solution, aligned with national and company-specific standards resulting in a well-skilled, well-rounded worker who's ready for a professional career in the company. Apprenticeships are a great way to develop a pipeline of talented, high-skilled workers to help businesses grow.

The average return on investment for companies with registered apprenticeships is $1.46 for each dollar invested, and 91% of apprentices that complete their training are still employed nine months later. (US Department of Labor)
