The Peoria Pathways to Prosperity team and its partners completed a pilot manufacturing pre-apprenticeship and are scaling it to engage approximately 40 students across four school districts and multiple manufacturing employers for AY 2018.
Also, Illinois Central College’s Industrial Maintenance apprenticeship is launching a pilot cohort of 15 students in fall of 2018, and new apprenticeships in Manufacturing, IT, and Health Sciences are being readied for following semesters. Pathways have been sequenced in Health Sciences, Manufacturing, and Information Technology across six unique school districts. The master template/framework was adopted, and a regional pathways dashboard is currently being constructed with sequencing. The team is also planning work to engage more regional districts this fall.
