When developing an apprenticeship model for an early childhood program, one of the major challenges that apprentices often face is the lack of subject matter alignment in their coursework, and having to do work over when colleges don’t accept previous coursework (lack of articulation agreements). Join us to learn from this panel discussion with higher education representatives in states that are tackling this challenge with an inspired and unified approach! Attendees will learn more about this, how it came to fruition and what it looks like in practice.
