Multi-craft Core Curriculum
The Multi-craft Core Curriculum created by the National Building Trades Unions is an online training program being utilized by the Building Pathways—CT Apprenticeship Readiness Program. This program will help prepare women and minority apprentices with the basic knowledge needed to apply for apprenticeship positions in the 14 Building Trades Unions.
Building Pathways—CT is an Apprenticeship Readiness program designed to promote women and minorities into the Building Trades. Candidates are carefully screened for interest in (and appropriateness for) a construction career and then are provided with a seven-week union-led training program that encompasses the multiple skill sets required of increasingly technical building and construction crafts. The program also introduces participants to the realities and expectations of multiple trades so each participant can choose a path that meshes with her interests and abilities. The concept is that a program designed and led by experienced union leaders and apprenticeship instructors is optimally-suited for preparing enrollees for successful entry into and completion of a multi-year registered apprenticeship in their chosen craft.
