Queen Anne’s County Public Schools is now participating in the Maryland Apprenticeship Program for students ages 16-18.

About Apprenticeship Maryland

The Apprenticeship Maryland Program is coordinated through a partnership between the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (DLLR). The program is for students, ages 16 and up, and is designed to lead to sustainable employment and further education in specific career pathways.

Eligible employers that are approved by the Maryland Apprenticeship Training Council (MATC) hire high school juniors and seniors to work in eligible career track occupations primarily in manufacturing and/or the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) industries. Employers provide fair compensation, thereby creating an “earn and learn” opportunity.

The program consists of at least one year of related classroom instruction and a workplace component of at least 450 hours. The workplace component is a paid (at least minimum wage) mentored, on-the-job, work experience with a written, student rating/work-based learning plan, and a formal agreement among the student, school, and employer. All program requirements must be completed prior to graduation.
