The Kansas Registered Apprenticeship Program

The Kansas Registered Apprenticeship Program is intentionally employer designed and driven, creating unique opportunities for employers and career seekers throughout the state. The program brilliantly incorporates on-the-job learning paralleled with technical instruction and mentorship with long term employment as the priority.

For Kansas, all Registered Apprenticeship programs are submitted for approval to an appointed Kansas Apprenticeship Council.  In addition to established regulatory responsibilities, the appointed Kansas Apprenticeship Council has been refocusing its efforts on expansion and awareness across the state.  Part of this effort included adopting the councils first ever vision and mission statement as well as publishing a strategic plan and annual review. On June 4, 2022, the council unanimously voted to adopt the vision and mission statement:

Vision: Growing Kansas Apprenticeship to the Top 25 by 2025

Mission Statement: To meet the needs of the Kansas economy and its citizens, the office of Apprenticeship will actively grow a robust system that supports our apprenticeship stakeholders, sponsors, intermediaries, and apprentices. We do this by strategically empowering partnerships that serve a diverse and inclusive workforce through occupational proficiency, for generations to come.
