About Apprentice Power

Apprentice  Power operates globally through the WPC Group and a collaboration that includes: Robert  C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing (RCBI) - Marshall  University Research Corporation - Skilling Australia Foundation - Advanced Manufacturing Partnership for Southern  California - Helping Communities Work, a think tank that focuses on the advancement of community anchor institutions. RCBI is an American Apprenticeship grant recipient. The grant is available to advanced manufacturing employers in order to offset the costs attached to apprenticeship development and management.

Apprentice  Power facilitates collaborations among associations in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom in order to create stronger international bonds  among stakeholders in education, industry and government. The partnership was formed to advance global economic development through the alignment of early college high schools, mentorships and non-traditional competency-based apprenticeships. 

Apprentice Power functions to enhance business attraction, retention and expansion through strategies designed to promote STEM and entrepreneurship education, close the skills  gap, create jobs, increase small business development and stimulate  place-based impact investing and foreign direct investment.
