Creating Partnerships for Complex Learning
Registered Apprenticeship plays an important role as a critical post-secondary education, training and employment option. Available in every state in the country, it trains more workers for high-skilled, high-wage careers than any other public workforce investment program in the nation, and at a fraction of the cost. Full collaboration between the publicly funded workforce investment system and Registered Apprenticeship leverages each system's strengths to maximize the benefits in the context of regional talent development strategies. But it doesn't stop there. Registered Apprenticeship is helping to meet the needs of a variety of programs, projects and systems and relies on an extensive network of partners to make the State of Kansas strong.
Progress through Partnerships
Government Programs and Grants are partnering with Registered Apprenticeship to support productive Kansas outcomes.
- The Department for Children and Families (DCF) uses funding from the Federal Child Development Block Grant to provide professional development for Kansas early care and education providers through the Early Childhood Associate Apprenticeship Program (ECAAP). A skilled early childhood workforce is a leading indicator of high quality services.
