Launching in three Texas communities.
The Texas School Ready (TSR) Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) will be able to drastically impact the early education workforce in Houston, Amarillo, and Brownsville. RAP will leverage the TSR model to support apprentices (teachers) working towards the nationally recognized Child Development Associate® (CDA) Credential. Through the RAP, apprentices will enhance teaching practices and receive professional development training. We are working to establish new career pathways and credentialing for teachers.
We look forward to working with these diverse communities and implementing our state’s Texas School Ready Registered Apprenticeship Program.
Our goal is to aid apprentices in seeing increased wages, receiving credentials, and providing them with a pathway to a college degree(s). We also want to support host sites (ECE (Early Care and Education) programs), aiding the apprentices through benefits and support. You can learn more about what benefits you will receive and eligibility through the buttons below.
