Pre-Apprenticeship Primer

Many of the workforce initiatives that are underway through CBG’s efforts are defined as pre-apprenticeship. Whether we are targeting youth through Destinations Career Academy or adults through Apprenticeship Readiness, the end goal is to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in Registered Apprenticeship.

Pre-Apprenticeship is a hot topic right now because of the June Presidential Order to expand apprenticeship in order to:
Prepare workers to fill existing and newly created jobs
Ensure students are graduating with the skills necessary to secure jobs
Provide paid, relevant workplace experience and opportunities to develop skills that employers value
Provide an affordable path to good jobs and careers
The Apprenticeship Expansion Order is focused on populations the Operating Engineers are currently targeting: high school students and veterans.

We are currently seeking Pre-Apprenticeship status from DWD and will share additional information in upcoming newsletters on how this can be implemented by contractors.
