Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a career pathway that gives you paid work experience, classroom instruction, and credentials that qualify you for jobs in a specific field. You will be paid to work a job in your chosen field but receive supervision and instruction until you are skilled enough or credentialed enough to work independently. This is a great choice for students that are looking to earn a salary right away and are interested in a specific trade such as cosmetology, construction, landscaping, healthcare, and more.
