Making Apprenticeships Work: Five Policy Recommendations

In many ways, the apprenticeship model can help answer the questions that keep lawmakers and innovators up at night – questions about how we can reimagine our approach to higher education in ways that expand opportunity, promote socioeconomic mobility, and align more closely with job outcomes. They also offer older workers a pathway into new jobs without the loss of income that would come from enrolling in a traditional higher education program. A new paper by University Ventures, Making Apprenticeships Work: Five Policy Recommendations, outlines a vision for policy change that can help us rethink that approach – not just with regard to apprenticeships, but the country’s entire system of education and workforce development.
