Wisconsin Apprenticeship Growth and Enhancement Strategies (WAGES) grant provides funding to register new apprentices and up-skill incumbent workers in the sectors of Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare and IT sectors. The 11 Wisconsin Workforce Development Board and the Wisconsin Technical College System will assist with the framework for developing, delivering and promoting effective apprenticeship programs statewide.

Registered apprenticeship offers numerous benefits to both employers and jobseekers. Apprenticeship is post-secondary education like a college or university. But there's a big difference. Apprentices learn only a portion of their skills in a traditional classroom. They receive most of their training on-the-job, while working for an employer who pays a good wage. The employment is the primary requirement for an apprenticeship - a job must exist for the apprentice to be trained. The classroom instruction is usually provided through the Wisconsin Technical College system.
