Modern Apprenticeships Offer Path to Career—and College
Tara García Mathewson, The Hechinger Report
In Colorado, there’s a nascent effort to use apprenticeships to give high schoolers work experience, and to do so in high-wage, high-demand career fields. At the end of the apprenticeships, which last three years, students have on-the-job experience, a useful credential in hand, and one year of college credit. They also earn about $30,000 in wages over the duration of the program.
