How GoSprout Creates Apprenticeship Benefits for Employers at XX% Less Cost than Any Other Way
On-the-job Training (OJT)
Apprentices take part in day-to-day operations at their jobs, solving real-world problems. By the end of the program, apprentices emerge on par with their full-time colleagues and, in many cases, as full-time employees. GoSprout is the backbone.
Related Training Instruction (RTI)
Depending on their needs, companies may offer RTI in-house or partner with community colleges, technical schools or dedicated apprenticeship training schools. GoSprout brings RTI options to the companies and allows apprentices to pick from the list.
And Apprenticeships Are Amazing for Our Nation’s Youth as Well
Student debt rose 70% between 2005 and 2015. Horror stories exist of people in their forties stilling paying off student debt from their early twenties.
Benefits of Apprenticeships Over Other Workplace Training Programs
Unlike many internships or work-study programs, Apprenticeship wages are meaningful, allowing students to learn & earn.
Most apprenticeship opportunities include classroom instruction via a training partner that may be a community college for credit.
A Valuable Credential
Upon program completion, apprentices earn a nationally-recognized credential within an industry.
Programs provide structured, on the-job learning using either a time-based, competency-based, or hybrid approach.
Apprentices form bonds with journeyworkers who provide one-on-one support and training.
Reviving the Art of Apprenticeship
Post-pandemic skill gaps need filling, and formal learning alone won’t do the trick. Scaling the lost art of one-on-one learning can make the difference.
Tech Apprenticehips Are on the Rise in the US
The Biden administration recently launched an initiative to expand the Registered Apprenticeship Program with the Apprenticeship Building America grant program. The grant will make $113 million in funding available to approved programs. It aims to diversify and modernize the U.S.’s apprenticeship program — something many tech companies stand to benefit from amidst a persistent labor shortage.
National Apprenticeship Week
NAW is a nationwide celebration where industry, labor, equity, workforce, education, and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship for re-building our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities.
I started GoSprout to ensure we take a holistic approach to the development of people (workers). After spending the last 15 years in the workforce space, I’ve learned that the key to untapping and developing talent is addressing 100% of the person. GoSprout creates just that – Technology as a vehicle but PEOPLE at the wheel.
