Apprenticeship Missouri Background


Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed Executive Order 19-20 on Nov. 12, 2019, during the 2019 Apprenticeship Missouri Summit establishing the Office of Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning.


Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway in which workers can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a transferable credential while job creators develop and prepare their future workforce. Apprenticeship is:

  • A flexible training model that can be customized to meet the needs of every business and industry.

  • A viable tool for the state to use to give Missourians the necessary skills to succeed.

  • An affordable approach to training and education for the employer and the job seeker.

  • An opportunity to earn a paycheck while learning from day one, reducing the potential to take on student debt.
