Why Should Educators Participate in an Apprenticeship Program? 

Educators play an integral role in aligning curriculum and competencies. Knowing the theory
behind the application is just as important as knowing the processes involved in the application
for today’s workforce. MAPS educators are resources for workforce innovation as well as
leaders in modernizing work-based learning.

By partnering with MAPS, educators will benefit by:

  • Develop a robust pipeline of new and diverse students directly into your program:
    MAPS builds pathways to enroll and support students intentionally focusing in women,
    military-connected individuals and underrepresented populations. MAPS partners with
    community colleges across the state to improve student enrollment between institutions.

  • Increase access to a broad network of industry partners:
    MAPS will partner with over 250 employers increasing access to industry support for
    research, instruction and equipment. MAPS works with industry partners such as chambers
    of commerce, workforce innovation boards and economic development to bolster avenues
    for industry engagement. 

  • Enhance student success before and after graduation:
    MAPS develops structured on-the-job learning experiences that create alignment between
    competencies learned in the classroom, practiced on the job and required in the career.
    These are paid on-the-job learning experiences where salary scales with skill attainment
    (i.e. the more you learn, the more you earn) helping support students financially while they
    complete coursework. MAPS participants will develop a professional network, receive years
    of professional experience, and earn a portable, industry-recognized credential.
