What are Apprenticeship Intermediaries?

As partners of the Kansas Office of Apprenticeship, Registered Apprenticeship Intermediaries Hubs are integral stakeholders in the effort to expand the number of Registered Apprenticeship opportunities across industries throughout Kansas. These partners increase awareness through industry outreach, connect employers and labor organizations with workforce and education partners, and provide technical assistance to launch and expand Registered Apprenticeship (RA) programs. Apprenticeship Intermediary Hubs are also tasked with helping apprenticeship sponsors refine recruiting, hiring, and retention strategies to increase Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) in Registered Apprenticeship programs.

Registered Apprenticeship Intermediaries offer expertise to help employers and labor organizations successfully launch, promote, and expand RA programs in growing industries or regions. These partners are uniquely positioned to convene employers within a specific industry or sub-sector to increase awareness of the Registered Apprenticeship model, and assist in the creation of RA programs.
