Apprenticeship is a step-by-step approach to training and developing skilled labor. Research has shown that apprenticeships offer several benefits to employers. By investing in talent development through apprenticeship, employers gain a group of skilled workers and increase productivity. The Department of Apprenticeship Standards pledged 100,000 new apprentices in the next 10 years. The Apprenticeship Exposition allows students to prepare and apply for an apprenticeship career while in high school.
