Apprenticeships give the opportunity for employers to develop talent from the ground up. As an apprentice, you will gain real world experience as you learn, while both receiving a paycheck and acquiring new skills. In today’s workforce, apprentices are frequently offered a position of full-time employment once their training has concluded. Below are some opportunities for on-the-job training currently available throughout Kansas.

Apprenti

Available through the KC Tech Council, Apprenti works to meet the long-term hiring needs of area employers by providing registered apprenticeships. Participating employers allocate resources to onboard non-traditional tech talent and provide mentorship to get that talent up to speed in an earn-and-learn model.
