Apprenticeship

This web page organizes apprentice related instruction resources for WTCS colleges and apprenticeship partners. Resources are grouped by format; introductory text, documents and hyperlinks.
 
Ready reference documents include the A/B calendar for coordinated delivery of inter-district instruction and WTCS contacts for WTCS programs of apprentice related instruction and the Technical Studies-Journeyworker AAS. (Please see the Current Apprentices page for course schedules for Transition to Trainer and Plumbing Code Review mandatory classes.)  Full versions of approved trade-specific curriculum model standards follow in PDF form for use in program promotion. For purposes of assessing transfer, all colleges are expected to document how their local curriculum aligns with the trade’s curriculum standards model.
 
WTCS Apprenticeship Coordinators & Staff Meeting Minutes are posted for the past year along with GPR grant information (and a sample completed Direct Instruction grant application to help first-timers). The stand-alone hotlink Apprentice Related Instruction from the Educational Services Manual includes Section 6.10.3, a single page form is all you need for most WTCS program actions involving established programs.
 
Apprentice Instructor Certification links to background information on the traditional certification process. Administrative Rules are under development for a new, more locally-based Faculty Quality Assurance process. Regulations and Resources can be found as both PDF documents and hotlinks.
 
Last, and certainly not least, College & Partner Apprenticeship Sites links to the specific apprenticeship-related splash page on each college’s website as well as external partners, the all-inclusive Vocational Information Council site, and the WIDS Repository.

Please note that some of the documents contained in this section are obtained from third-party entities and as such are regretfully not guaranteed to be completely ADA accessible.
