Effective employer engagement practices: Observations from select technology apprenticeship programs

The goal of this report is to highlight effective employer engagement practices and identify key lessons learned from implementing technology-focused apprenticeship programs. To identify effective practices, JFF interviewed eight individuals who are implementing these types of programs through the American Apprenticeship Initiative (AAI) to answer four questions: 1. How are tech apprenticeship programs engaging employers? 2. How do these programs identify employer hiring and training needs? 3. What are the primary barriers faced when working with employers to develop apprenticeship programs? 4. How are apprenticeship programs addressing barriers to employer engagement? This report summarizes the findings from those interviews
