Ohio's Model Pre-Apprenticeship program.
This program is open to seniors, but preparation starts during the junior year. The School-to-Apprenticeship program helps students enter an occupation requiring a high level of skill. Business and education are linked with a formal apprenticeship program approved by the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeship, which sets demanding occupational and academic standards.
Students in the School-to-Apprenticeship program can complete up to one year of apprenticeship credit during their senior year. Students learn competencies necessary for entry-level employment in their career area.
