APPRENTICESHIP BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP

Apprenticeship Partners

(Individual Student)

Help supplement your workforce and build your company culture by hosting Crossing students in pre-apprenticeship opportunities.  Level 3 students trained to your specifications will be deployed to your business on a regular schedule (1/2 day or full days).   One or more students will actively work alongside your staff learning the necessary skills to contribute to your workforce, with the potential of becoming an employee after graduation (dependent on the business choice to offer employment and the student’s desire to continue with the business).

The Apprenticeship Partner will be responsible for appointing an employee with the proper experience and credentials to directly oversee student(s) (AKA Workplace Practitioner).  The Crossing will train this employee on specific program guidelines and curricular requirements in addition to regularly checking in with this employee for communication on student progress.

The Crossing partners with The Office of Work-based Learning to help facilitate the SEALs (State Earn And Learn) program with your business which helps provide funding for these paid pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs.
