Registered Apprenticeship Intermediary

Last Updated 06/30/2024

Coordination among the many partners in apprenticeship programs (e.g., sponsors, employers, providers of related technical instruction) is an important feature of successful apprenticeship programs.

For youth apprenticeship programs specifically, employers and high schools must work together to design flexible schedules so students can complete their high school diploma requirements and required on-the-job training (OJT) hours for participating in Registered Apprenticeships. When related technical instruction is delivered at a community or technical college, the colleges and high schools may need to work to provide dual (concurrent) credit opportunities. Parents too may need additional information on apprenticeships.

For all apprenticeship programs (youth and older populations), coordination among program partners is often the role of a Registered Apprenticeship Intermediary. The intermediary communicates among the partners and helps partners successfully create, launch, and expand apprenticeship programs. Key tasks typically include student and employer matching, participant and employer recruitment, managing registration, and reporting outcomes (from data tracking).

This role is provided by various types of organizations: high schools, industry associations and business organizations, community and technical colleges, nonprofit and community-based organizations, labor management partnerships, state agencies, and workforce development councils.
