Higher Ed Sees a $183.8 Million Investment Injection into Apprenticeship Training

How will a $183.8 million investment injection into apprenticeship training affect higher ed?

Reported by EducationDive, twenty three institutions and university systems received apprenticeship funding from President Trump’s 2017 executive order to expand apprenticeships.

Some employers see these apprenticeships as a great way to specifically train potential employees while vetting them. Some institutions see apprenticeships as a great hands-on learning opportunity for their degree-seeking students, and are using their grants partially to pay employers for participating.

The takeaway? As the federal government looks to incentivize these apprenticeship employment opportunities, how can we better partner with employers to provide our students with wonderful hands-on experience that employers are excited to leverage?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
