Report on Making Apprenticeships Work

February 5, 2018

Amid increasing bipartisan interest in expanding apprenticeship opportunities in this country, a new report from the University Ventures Fund includes policy recommendations for how to best harness new federal investment in the space. Ryan Craig, the investment firm's managing director, wrote the white paper with Tom Bewick, president of the Transatlantic Apprenticeship Exchange Forum and co-founder of Franklin Apprenticeships.

The authors' recommendations include:

  • Shift the mind-set to digital apprenticeships by bringing emerging and fast-growing industries to the table;
  • Formalize and incentivize the role of apprenticeship service providers;
  • Clarify federal funding for apprenticeship programs;
  • Build apprenticeships at the industry level, rather than one employer at a time; and
  • Encourage the public sector to lead by example by implementing government apprenticeship programs.
