What is an Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is a proven approach for preparing workers for jobs while meeting the needs of business for a highly-skilled workforce. It is a “learn-while-you-earn” model that combines on-the-job training, provided by the employer that hires the apprentice, with job-related instruction provided by Sinclair. The model also involves progressive increases in an apprentice’s skills and wages.

Apprenticeship is a flexible training strategy that can be customized to meet the needs of any business. Apprentices can be new hires, or businesses can select current employees who need skill upgrades to join the apprenticeship program. The apprenticeship model is leading the way in preparing American workers to compete in today’s economy.
