Moderator Highlights

  • Apprenticeship programs take a lot of pre-planning, many conversations with leadership, and starting relationships with schools/programs the company wants to work with. 
  • Building business cases is extremely important – especially with those leadership members who are skeptical of starting a program.
  • Measuring success comes in many different ways – but mostly conversion rate. What % of students are joining full-time post apprenticeship?
  • Challenges: Lots of them! Headcount planning especially. Making a business case.
