Symposium on the "NEW" Apprenticeship Model & Initiatives

Alternatives to the 'college-for-all' model

The symposium features information & presentations about apprenticeship programs and initiatives in Minnesota and the US. We are bringing together stakeholders and leaders to increase awareness and advance dual education models and apprenticeship opportunities.

Keynote speaker Mario Kratsch from the GACC Midwest shares his experiences leading the ICATT Apprenticeship Program in the Chicago area. Other presentations include perspectives from Industry, Education, and the MN Department of Labor & Industry.

We believe that the Dual Education system in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland can be used as a guide and modified and adapted for the US and be of great value. However, not many people are aware or familiar with the concept of 'dual education' and apprenticeship opportunities   

Speakers and attendees alike are leaders and stakeholders whose engagement and support will advance the future of Apprenticeships and Dual Education in Minnesota.
