Apprenticeship combines on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. Hands-on and theoretical training prepares workers for highly skilled and specialized occupations.
Apprenticeship programs are sponsored by an individual employer and/or employer associations, or by joint employer and labor groups. Participants should be employed full time by an apprenticeship sponsor while still attending classes.
The NC Triangle Apprenticeship Program gives high school seniors the opportunity to work as apprentices with a company, and then earn a college degree while continuing their apprenticeship. Visit www.nctap.org for more information.
