  • 3. Value of On-The-Job-Training and Related Technical Instruction – A German Model Apprenticeships Cost of education reasonable – no debt Able to earn college credits through local colleges Develop employable skills Hired by companies and able to prove self as valuable to company Wages attractive Customize worker to company needs and culture Veterans benefit through GI Bill Customized Training Companies benefit Employees benefit – new skill learned and paid during training Cost of training often reduced or paid in full through grants (10 or more employees trained) Timely, responsive and customized to company need Build loyalty Create opportunity to build stackable credentials for employees and companies to have employees with key credentials to meet labor requirements

  • 5. Key Considerations The average number of students who are enrolled in a 4 year college who do not complete their degree is between 46-50% and those that do may take up to six years (Harvard Study: Education at a Glance 2010) Enrollments at Community Colleges and Institutes of Technology and Vocational schools are on the rise (cost, time and employable skills) US Manufacturers could not fill 281,000 positions due to skill gaps ( June 2014) – A call for apprentices and developing own workforce? (WSJ 9/12/14). By 2017, an estimated 2.5 million new, middle-skill jobs are expected to be added to the workforce, accounting for nearly 40% of all job growth according to a USA TODAY analysis of local data from Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. and CareerBuilder (USA Today 9/30/14).
