New Money and New Players on Apprenticeships - Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed

The kickoff of President Trump’s apprenticeship push is slated for today with a policy speech observers said will include a call for new money, a less balky federal approach to registered apprenticeships and more openness to noncollege providers handling the educational side of those programs. During a speech today at the U.S. Department of Labor, Trump is expected to announce a grant program of up to $200 million to expand apprenticeships, with an increased emphasis on growth industries like information technology and health care as well as manufacturing. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/06/14/white-house-apprenticeship-push-will-include-funding-and-focus-alternative-providers
