Learning Lab 1: How do you ensure your apprenticeship is sustainable? As Dr. Rebecca Lake, former dean of apprenticeship at Harper College says, you have to “cost everything out,” with an eye toward understanding how many apprentices make a program sustainable. In the first of three sessions discussing the funding and sustainability of apprenticeship in California, members of the ASN community of practice will consider the actual cost of running an apprenticeship program. Participants worked with peers to assemble an accurate cost of running their own programs, learn how their experience compares to others in the field, and uncover the point at which a program becomes sustainable. Hosted by Grow Apprenticeship California.
