On Sept 6, 2022 Governor Laura Kelly Establishes Office of Registered Apprenticeship. By signing Executive Order #22-07, this officially establishes the Office within the Kansas Office of Registered Apprenticeship. The Office will dramatically scale up the states efforts to meet the talent needs of Kansas businesses, give workers the skills and experience they need to compete in the modern economy, and knock down barriers to employment.

The Office of Registered Apprenticeship will:

-Evaluate, and report annually on, the extent, quality and impact of registered apprenticeships in Kansas.
-Develop strategies to modernize the registered apprenticeship program to include additional industries such as healthcare, IT, agricultural manufacturing, and distribution and logistics – all critical segments in the Kansas economy.
-Develop and advocate for registered apprenticeship program policies that place a special focus on veterans, women, people of color, those formerly incarcerated and others with barriers to successful employment.
