Guide to seeking apprenticeship 2017

This guide explores apprenticeship; a talent recruitment and career development strategy that integrates on-
the-job learning, coinciding with technical instruction.
Through a $2.9M grant, Pennsylvania’s Southeast region is positioned to create Pr-apprenticeship curricula and expand existing apprenticeships in rapidly expanding industries, such as information technology and behavioral health for youth ages 16-24. This initiative supports creation of an efficient talent pool that serves the needs of employers such as Jarvus and Springboard Media.
