ABC Keystone is dedicating significant resources and effort to develop partnerships with area K-12 schools and career and technical centers, as well as community-based organizations, that will result in articulation agreements between the organizations and credit for students entering registered apprenticeship. An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement that matches coursework between schools.
Articulation is mutually beneficial. Schools can provide a pathway for students that aren’t interested in college or wish to join the workforce upon graduation. Students are more employable and get credit towards registered apprenticeship, while ABC Keystone employer members have a larger pool of trades candidates to fill open positions and pay less in tuition for those students coming from a partnering school.
