~~“In 2018, Vermont Department of Labor (VDOL) applied for and received new funding for a national apprenticeship expansion grant. The grant led to the creation of a State Apprenticeship Team that is charged with:
•Gaining expertise in federal Registered Apprenticeship program requirements; •Designing tools and common outreach practices for engaging and supporting employers and apprentices;
•Establishing efficient systems to develop apprenticeship models quickly, including the standards of apprenticeship, related instruction curriculum, work plan, employer agreement, connection to a career pathway, and any other related component;
•Creating support service models for employers and apprentices that can be replicated throughout the system; •Accelerating and strengthening the connections of their agency to apprenticeship work throughout the state;
Developing mechanisms to evaluate the effectiveness of the system and promote continuous improvement; and
•Identifying opportunities to leverage resources and support for apprenticeship opportunities.

The six team members are: VDOL, VR, AOE, DED, Community College of Vermont, and Vermont Technical College.”
