About the Webinar

The American Council on Education (ACE) Apprenticeship Pathways project expands the range of alternative educational experiences eligible for college credit and leverages the impact of high-quality apprenticeships.

Join ACE for a moderated discussion with real-life examples from industry leaders and postsecondary institutions that are building bridges via apprenticeships. These concrete examples will highlight how apprenticeship providers and educational institutions are providing pathways for apprentices to put their learning to work by applying knowledge and skills gained directly to degrees, certificates, and career opportunities.
