The State Apprenticeship Expansion program currently funds both apprenticeship navigators and apprenticeship intermediaries. An apprenticeship navigator helps employers establish and sponsor apprenticeships at their business. Apprenticeship intermediaries sponsor and manage apprenticeship programs, working with business to support apprentices’ progress.

There are currently 16 apprenticeship intermediary programs funded in Illinois through this initiative. Links to each location can be found below. Note: new apprenticeship intermediary grantees will be announced in January 2022.
