“IBE has been a fabulous connector and has helped tremendously with the promotion of Registered Apprenticeships. They present RA as a solution to the workforce crisis.”

-North Idaho College

Apprenticeship is one strategy that has helped many organizations

Diversify your workforce, foster a culture of mentorship, inspire staff, and provide leadership opportunities for existing personnel.

Employers who use apprentices report higher productivity, higher retention rates, and a substantial return on investment. In fact, according to recent studies, 91% of apprentices stay with their company long term and for every $1 invested, businesses see an ROI of $1.47 .

Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers, schools and organizations can develop and prepare their future workforce. Registered Apprenticeship gives individuals a proven path to a successful career where they can obtain paid work experience, technical instruction, and a nationally recognized credential with little to no debt.

Talent acquisition is increasingly costly, challenging, and ineffective. Forward-thinking companies are growing their own talent pipelines through modern youth apprenticeships.
