Webinar | Understanding Competency-Based Apprenticeship Programs

On Sept. 26, 2018, JFF’s Center for Apprenticeship & Work-Based Learning hosted a one-hour webinar exploring the growing influence that competency-based learning frameworks and program models are having on apprenticeship in the US. 

This webinar examined the increased use of competency-based apprenticeships, where apprentices master a specific skill and then move on to the next level, an approach that reduces the time needed for workers to achieve full productivity.  The webinar featured experts who have operated successful programs and developed nationally recognized competency frameworks for critical jobs in multiple industries to help strengthen apprenticeship across the nation.
