St. Augustine College’s Institute for Workforce Education is a co-navigator in Region 4, in northeastern Illinois, and is ready to provide guidance and connect employers to intermediaries and other sources, which will provide further assistance.

Apprenticeship is a workforce strategy to meet employers’ talent needs and to help individuals connect to a career pathway for many different occupations. It is a work-based learning model, commonly referred to as a “learn and earn” model, where on-the-job training is combined with relevant classroom instruction. The apprentice progressively acquires new skills and applies these learned skills on the job under the supervision of a mentor. Upon completion of the program, the apprentice receives industry recognized credentials. Although apprenticeships have been traditionally associated with construction and the trades, they are now within all industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, transportation, banking, insurance, and other areas.
