Georgia WorkSmart is a work-based learning initiative operated by Technical College System. The initiative promotes work-based learning models, such as apprenticeships, as a workforce development tool throughout the State. Georgia WorkSmart assists Georgia companies in developing and implementing customized programs to meet their specific hiring and training needs.
A key workforce training model promoted by Georgia WorkSmart is Registered Apprenticeship. Through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship and other education and state agency partners, Georgia WorkSmart helps organizations create apprenticeship programs that include curriculum and classroom instruction development. Assistance with national apprenticeship registration is also provided through this partnership.
Apprenticeship is a work-based training method that combines formal instruction with on-site, occupation-related training.
