Characteristics of Long-Term Care Registered Apprenticeship Programs: Implications for Evaluation Design

Abstract

One strategy for improving the skills of workers in the long-term care system is to expand registered apprenticeship programs. To test whether the registered apprenticeship model is an effective approach for training long-term care workers, the US Department of Health and Human Services and Department of Labor have funded a study to examine design options for evaluating long-term care registered apprenticeship programs. This report, developed by the Urban Institute and RTI International, examines the characteristics of selected programs as part of the effort to determine the feasibility of evaluating these programs.
