  • Linda Smith from the Bipartisan Policy Institute will provide remarks that position the apprenticeship model in the context of Early Childhood Education policy.
  • Early Childhood Education (ECE) apprentices, their coaches, and their employers will provide the context for their participation in the apprenticeship program and share how the program has impacted them, their work, and the children and families that they serve.
  • The mechanics and impact of ECE apprenticeship will be described during workshops from the perspectives of employers, institutions of higher education, program evaluators, and early childhood education policy makers. ECE apprenticeship program replication tools, resources, and ideas will be shared in support of program growth and replication.
