Apprenticeship is an “Earn While You Learn” model of occupational training that involves both post-secondary coursework and substantial and well-defined on-the-job learning obtained at the apprentices place of work. Apprentices are hired first by their apprenticeship sponsor/employer and then referred to the WTCS for classroom instruction. The WTCS offers related instruction for over seventy-five occupations across many career clusters, including construction, manufacturing, utilities, information technology, agriculture, healthcare, natural resources, transportation, and hospitality and personal service sectors.
Examples of ready reference documents provided below include the A/B calendar for coordinated delivery of inter-district instruction, WTCS college contacts for apprentice related instruction and the Technical Studies-Journeyworker Associate of Applied Science Degree, the most recent WTCS Apprentice Completer Report, and the upcoming calendar for the seasonal State Apprenticeship Trade Advisory Committees meetings.
