Build a Program
Apprenticeships are employer-driven programs that train employees for a specific occupation through on the job learning and related instruction. ApprenticeshipPHL is here to help you build your own talent development pipeline or connect to an existing apprenticeship program.
Apprenticeships are proven to:
Customize Your Skilled Workforce
Having a tough time finding the right people? Apprenticeship is a flexible training strategy that can meet the needs of every business. Every apprenticeship is different and employers get to design a model that works for them.
Reduce Turnover & Cost
Looking to increase loyalty? 92% of apprentices remain with their employer at the end of the apprenticeship program.
See a $1.47 return for every $1 invested. The best part? The ROI begins during the apprenticeship, not after.
Create Talent Pipelines
The workforce is changing but businesses’ needs are not. Apprenticeship enables experienced staff to transfer knowledge to new hires through mentorship and on the job training. This model allows employers to tap a more diverse talent pool to help your business flourish.

How it Works
Pre-Apprenticeship programs are designed to prepare individuals to enter and succeed in a Registered Apprenticeship program, and ultimately a career.
ApprenticeshipPHL will help you develop a pre-apprenticeship program, identify partnerships, and prepare your documents for registration.
Pre-Apprenticeships are designed to:
Cover the Basics
Many programs focus on introducing people to careers within the industry or with a specific employer. They prepare individuals to have the right basic skills to be successful in an apprenticeship program.
Include Technical Training
Apprenticeship programs drive the design of the training curriculum including technical training based on industry standards and hands-on experience that introduces individuals to the expectations of the job. Just like an apprenticeship, pre-apprenticeships are employer-driven.
Target Specific Populations
Whether you want to begin early by preparing high school students and recent grads or focus on older professionals who have a rich career history, programs can be built to target specific populations. Not to mention, if you are looking to diversify your talent pool by attracting underrepresented individuals to your industry.
Consider Pre-Apprenticeship as your Golden Ticket to Qualified Candidates.
