Registered Apprenticeship (RA) Program

  • The Virginia Registered Apprenticeship  (RA) is a training system that produces highly skilled workers to meet the demands of employers competing in a global economy, through a combination of on-the-job training and theoretical classroom instruction. It is a "win-win" approach to workforce development for more than 13,000 apprentices (employees) throughout the Commonwealth.  Roanoke County Public Schools is partnering with local businesses to provide RA opportunities for juniors and seniors.
