Getting Started with Apprenticeships

JEVS Human Services can assist you with instituting apprenticeships into your workplace. Here is some information to help you get started:

The Basics

  • Registered Apprenticeships have a sponsor (to serve as the administrator) and an employer (to hire the apprentice)
  • Businesses can create and operate their own Apprenticeship, serving as both sponsor and employer—JEVS can assist with developing and registering your program
  • Employers can also sign on to “Group-sponsored” apprenticeships through an intermediary, such as JEVS, to tailor an existing training plan to their business
  • Pre-Apprenticeships can connect employers to diverse talent pipelines and provide for baseline training and evaluation of potential candidates
