According to a recent article from Human Resource Executive, a new study found that 80 percent of students recognize the need for training that is often found in apprenticeships and would embrace them if they more widely promoted and known.
The study conducted by Accenture, Apprenticeships: From Community College to Promising Tech Career, has wide-ranging implications for all trades that have an apprenticeship-based career path.
The study claims: “Our survey shows students are eager for training that prepares them for jobs with higher earnings and better career potential, but that many students feel their community college education fails to provide them with a pathway to in-demand jobs they often conclude are out of reach.”
In reviewing the study, Human Resource Executive concludes:
“that a concerted effort by employers, educators and non-profit partners to build and promote apprenticeship programs has the potential to fundamentally change the professional trajectory for millions of Americans—and the economy as a whole."
