Trump announces $200M apprenticeship initiative

Sveva Terracina | 20 Giugno, 2017, 17:09

"The Foundation has already begun working with the industry to develop and implement an apprenticeship program that provides the skills and training needed for career advancement across multiple management positions", stated Rob Gifford, Executive Vice President, National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.

Trump said he will remove federal restrictions that have prevented industries from creating apprenticeship programmes. Enlarging the pool is an idea that has bipartisan support. "Those can be factors, but they don't have to be".

Registered apprenticeships are administered by a special office within the US Department of Labor in conjunction with state agencies. Add to that, news from NPR that only about a half-million of the nation's 146 million jobs were filled by apprentices previous year, and the challenges of the funding issues crystallize.

"We're training people to have great jobs and high paying jobs", Trump said at the signing ceremony.

While a broad range of experts and industry groups praised the administration's focus on apprenticeships, some anxious about opening up the federal process to outside players.

Ms. Lake, of Harper College, says she has confidence in the Labor Department to draft rules that will maintain quality standards.

The apprenticeship system, which has been in place since the 1930s, was reinvigorated during former President Barack Obama's tenure.

Trump's executive order also requires all federal agencies that participate in apprenticeship programs or workforce training to examine whether their efforts are duplicative or could be combined with other programs to greater effect. Walker used Trump's past job on the television show "The Apprentice" against him when they were both running for president in 2015. And in history, nobody has gotten rid of so many regulations at the Trump administration. And it calls on Congress to allow student loans to apply to technical college education or on the job training. It has become a sponsor of registered apprenticeship programs offered by companies, meaning that it streamlines the process by doing all the administrative work. "South Carolina has seized the opportunity to enhance business engagement, to educate and empower job seekers, and ultimately to provide businesses with skilled workers". Instead, apprentices earn while they learn, which is an expression we're using - earn while you learn. "Yes, it could be simplified, but we don't want to throw out the baby with bathwater", he adds. "There needs to be a robust public work-force system that includes basic skills training", as well as access to child care and transportation help for people returning to work.

After the president's health care remarks, he continued his whirlwind trip by visiting Waukesha County Technical College.

"Graduates of the apprenticeship programs also enjoy a "$300,000 lifetime increase in earnings" without the burden of debt from student loans. In addition, they receive little or no federal subsidies for their apprenticeship programs.

While such fears are still deeply entrenched, says Ms. Flynn, of Jobs for the Future, "those mind-sets are starting to change now that parents are aware of the high-quality career-education options available".

The executive order, which was developed along with the Labor Department, will allocate more funding and create a task force of business leaders to promote the programs across new business sectors.

"I want to challenge the assumption that the only way to move policy is to increase government spending", Acosta said at the White House news briefing Monday. With technology rapidly remaking the nature of work, it's more important than ever for workers to remain relevant (and probably harder, too).
