Colleges Collaborate on Apprenticeships

In Montana, a program partnership involving Miles Community College, Missoula College, local employers and the state’s Labor Department has led to the creation of a competency-based integrated apprenticeship program to simultaneously solve the worker shortage and student attritoin rates in the state.

For the colleges, the major win is a guaranteed pool of students recruited by industry, whose tuition is paid for, as well as a guaranteed pool of adjunct faculty who are also employed by industry.
