Apprenticeships: An Emerging Community College Strategy for Workforce Development

Provides an overview of registered apprenticeship programs, including pre-apprenticeships and youth apprenticeships, and describes their recent growth. It also discusses several barriers to further expansion and strategies to improve programs, including to: increase funding and align funds for postsecondary education and workforce development; expand to industries not typically served by apprenticeships, especially in growing fields such as health care and information technology; increase diversity of participants, especially with intentional outreach to communities of color and women; and expand access to pre-apprenticeships and youth apprenticeships aligned with postsecondary pathways.
