Iowa employers and educators have a new guide to help them establish registered apprenticeship programs, the Corridor Business Journal reported. Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg, with representatives of Vermeer Corp., the Career Academy of Pella and Des Moines Area Community College, on Tuesday introduced the new High School Registered Apprenticeship Playbook in Pella. Reynolds predicted the playbook will help accelerate the Future Ready Iowa goal of attaining education or training beyond high school for at least 70 percent of the state's workforce by the year 2025. Vermeer and the Career Academy of Pella led development of the playbook, in coordination with the Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council, Future Ready Iowa, the Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship in Iowa and DMACC, in consultation with other regional employers, school districts and state agencies.
