Apprenticeship: Earning While Learning

Apprenticeship is a structured work-based learning model that supports professional development by providing concurrent on-the-job training and education. Apprenticeship programs are defined career pathways for people of all ages who want to earn a competitive salary while attending college. Employers that participate in apprenticeship programs cut recruitment costs while gaining a skilled workforce. Waubonsee’s apprenticeship programs are registered with the Department of Labor.
