New Hampshire Community College System Receives Grant to Expand Apprenticeship Program

The US Department of Labor awarded the Community College System of New Hampshire a grant to expand its apprenticeship program. The $5.8 million grant to ApprenticeshipNH will expand their Registered Apprenticeship program. Anne Banks, grants manager for ApprenticeshipNH High Schools, said she was “beyond thrilled” to have the additional funding for registered apprentices. “It combines on-the-job training with related technical instruction,” Banks said. The banks said they wanted to develop centers for each community college to reach more students. “It will allow us to expand our work and really create sustainable infrastructure,” Banks said. Workforce Development Coordinator Kate Amrol is with the New Hampshire Auto Dealers Association, which has used the program to successfully recruit workers for the past two years. “Right now we are going through an even more difficult time than ever before,” Amrol said. “Being eligible for grants supports the purchase of tools or even anything they need to get to work or be who they need to be when they are at work.” Amrol said they are about to see a lot of retirements and are ready for young people to fill those slots. “With the advanced technology that we see with electric vehicles and self-driving and that kind of stuff, we want this younger generation to come in and fill that void because they already have a lot of experience with technology,” Amrol said. . ApprenticeshipNH is the only organization in New Hampshire to receive the funding.
