South Carolina Puts Its Support Behind Apprenticeships
Ellie Ashford, Community College Daily
As a high school student dual enrolled at Trident Technical College in South Carolina, Shannon Brennan served as a youth apprentice at Cummins Turbo Technologies for four hours a day. After completing the program in 2016, she was offered a full-time job. Promotions followed, and she's now working on completing an associate degree at Trident with Cummins covering her education costs.
Brennan's experience is just one of many success stories brought about by Apprenticeship Carolina (AC), a program of the South Carolina Technical College System. AC assists employers in creating demand-driven paid apprenticeships. It also helps companies and colleges develop customized training programs.
