Learning Goals
Participants will learn what Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Programs are; What Apprenticeship Models exist at CCP; what training WEI staff have in this model and what programs we have planned for the future; how community colleges and WEI can support and lead the development of these programs. Participants can also contribute to a brainstorming session as to what programs at CCP seem ripe for this innovative model.

Program Description
Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Programs are a historical model for work-based learning that is seeing a renewal, a focus on non-traditional career areas, and resurgence in the 21st Century. This session will discuss modern Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship program models and their benefits for students and industry. A discussion will follow about the role the Community Colleges can play in Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Programs, with some examples of models from around the country. Finally, we will discuss current Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship programming at Community College of Philadelphia, and our plans to expand this programming in the future.
