Apprenticeship: A Partnership. A Learning Activities Package Introducing Apprenticeship.
Lawton, Marcy F.
This learning activity package (LAP), developed as part of a cooperative project conducted by the Fairfax County, Virginia, Public Schools in conjunction with the Virginia Merit Shop Education Foundation, is intended to assist adults who are interested in enrolling in an apprenticeship program. (The apprenticeship program was developed to recruit women, members of minority groups, and English-as-a-Second-Language speakers into eight construction trade apprenticeships.) The LAP is intended to help potential apprentices understand their personal work interests and their attitudes toward work. It also provides them with information about the apprenticeship program and about what employers expect from apprentices and what apprentices can expect from employers. This workbook covers the following topics in five units: (1) understanding your work interests; (2) understanding your work attitudes; (3) understanding the program; (4) expectations--the employer/employee; and (5) enrolling in the Virginia Apprenticeship Program. Each unit contains objectives, information sheets and learning activities such as checklists and surveys. (KC)
