It’s National Apprenticeship Week: Grow the Pipeline
On November 12, 2019 by Jenna Kellerman
It’s National Apprenticeship Week! As many organizations work to “grow their own” workforce, dual-training or apprenticeship models are excellent ways to provide workers with the skills they need to be successful in the long-term care profession, and specifically, the practices they need to be successful in your organization.
The PIPELINE program is an innovative approach from the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry to move apprenticeships forward. The PIPELINE exists to support employers in creating or enhancing a competency based dual-training approach where workers receive a combination of related instruction strategically paired with on-the-job training. Dual-training grants through the Minnesota Office of Higher Education provide funding for employers to create new and expand existing dual-training initiatives.
Did you know that apprenticeships in healthcare are booming in Minnesota? There are currently 13 healthcare positions with apprenticeship programs. Your organization could start a Dual Training or Registered Apprenticeship program today with support from the Department of Labor and Industry! Learn more here.
