Atkinson, Karen A.
This handbook describes how apprenticeship programs may be developed and established in a correctional institution. Advantages and disadvantages of an apprenticeship, Michigan State policy, and definitions of terms are presented in the first three sections. The various steps in development and implementation of an apprenticeship program are discussed in the remaining sections. They include administering apprenticeship program standards; types of apprenticeship programs (complete and cluster); registering the program standards; developing program standards; enrolling the apprentices; beginning the apprentice; programming the apprentice; maintaining the apprentice; concerns such as wages, conduct and discipline, and complaint procedure; graduating and placing the apprentice/craftworker; and modifying the standards. Extensive appendixes forming the bulk of the document include a list of apprenticeable occupations, standards model for correctional institutions, state apprenticeship core programs, sample forms, and policy directives applicable to apprenticeships in correctional institutions.
