Tooling U-SME’s Apprenticeship Acceleration Framework pairs on-the-job training with related training instruction, supplying a talent pipeline of qualified workers for employers and industries.
The Apprenticeship Acceleration Framework can reduce the time for an apprentice to reach the journey-level. This flexible model allows organizations and educators to customize the framework towards specific business needs and tracks the demonstrated OJT skills a worker should perform over the years of their development.
Tooling U-SME’s Apprenticeship Acceleration Framework
Tooling U-SME supports nationwide Department of Labor (DOL) apprenticeship programs with a competency-based approach to traditional apprenticeship models. In the past, apprenticeships have consisted of completion of Related Training Instruction (RTI) and On-The-Job Training (OJT) hours that work towards a journeyman status. However, today’s apprenticeships differ from earlier iterations. Informal, time-based programs are out. Formal, competency-based programs are in. Tooling U-SME believes that competency-based learning and development programs are essential for successfully learning specific job roles. Our Apprenticeship Acceleration Framework examines the necessary knowledge and skills that support common apprenticeship job functions.
The tooling USME Apprenticeship Acceleration Framework provides the following key benefits:
- Helps manufacturers recruit and develop a highly skilled workforce
- Streamlines the training process through assessment and improves ROI by eliminating non-value-added steps
- Helps mentors accurately evaluate worker performance levels using competency-based indicators, reducing subjective assessment
- Provides less experienced performers with a clear definition and outline of what they need to achieve in order to become superior performers
