The Benefits and Challenges of Registered Apprenticeship: The Sponsors’ Perspective

Posted by Thao Nelson - On May 07, 2009 (EST)

This is a study ETA commissioned by Robert Lerman of the Urban Institute and American University, “The Benefits and Challenges of Registered Apprenticeship: The Sponsors’ Perspective.” Findings show that 97 percent of Registered Apprenticeship sponsors—employers and labor-management programs alike—are highly satisfied with the model and would recommend it to other businesses. More than 80 percent of sponsors say that they use Registered Apprenticeship to meet their need for skilled workers. Another 72 percent say that Registered Apprenticeship helps them show which workers have needed skills; and 68 percent feel that the model raises productivity, strengthens worker morale and pride and improves worker safety. Few other publicly funded workforce programs have this level of satisfaction from employers and labor-management partnerships.
