Two-and four-year postsecondary education institutions are looking for ways to attract a new pool of degree seekers who desire flexibility in obtaining new career opportunities and a greater earning potential. Registered Apprenticeship-College Consortium (RACC) provides a way to strengthen these opportunities for students.
Full Publication Title: TAACCCT Partnerships: Registered Apprenticeship and Registered Apprenticeship-College Consortium (RACC)
Join us for a webinar that includes Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grantees and the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Apprenticeship! Many Round 3 and 4 TAACCCT grants proposed developing Registered Apprenticeships (RA) as part of their Statements of Work, which can be a key aspect of sustainability. This webinar will feature two TAACCCT grantees who are members of RACC. The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Apprenticeship will provide information about how to become a RACC member (240 institutions are members, currently) for interested attendees.
