    Youth Apprenticeship

    Youth Apprenticeship is a framework in which students between the ages of 16-24 are receiving classroom-based education (related technical instruction) and work-based learning. Quality youth apprenticeship programs link directly to an employer (s) engaged and invested in the student(s)’ learning and employment outcomes. The student receives related technical instruction, on the job learning, and is employable, as demonstrated by an employer’s willingness to hire the youth if program successfully completed.

      Apprenticeship Readiness

      Apprenticeship Readiness is defined as a student who is enrolled and engaged in classroom-based education (related technical instruction) with academic alignment to industry, or with any youth apprenticeship or registered apprenticeship program. A student who has successfully completed a level 1 course from a Career Technical Education program and is pursuing a level 2 or enrolled in dual credit at the postsecondary level is receiving related technical instruction because the courses are academically aligned with industry.
