Senate bill would create national apprenticeship college consortium - Ryan Golden, Higher Ed Dive

 A bill proposed in the U.S. Senate May 27 would create an "apprenticeship college consortium" and oblige the secretary of labor and secretary of education to enter an interagency agreement to promote apprenticeship. The consortium would consist of postsecondary educational institutions, instruction providers, sponsors, intermediaries and employers. Participants would be required to have agreements on establishing credit transfers with apprenticeship program sponsors; awarding academic credit to apprentices; and supporting electronic transcripts for apprenticeship programs. The Department of Labor and the Department of Education also would be required to provide technical assistance on eligible financial aid as well as information to consortium participants, including a list of participating programs and guidelines on how to develop a program.
