Construction Craft Laborer CTE Program (Pre-Apprenticeship)

The Apprenticeship Exploration School offers students the necessary credits to achieve a High School diploma, while providing them with a gateway into the New England Laborers’ Apprenticeship Program.

Students who excel in a hands-on environment will have the opportunity to learn in a simulated
construction atmosphere using industry-standard tools and machinery under the guidance of our accredited instructors. Students can explore scopes of work such as road construction, heavy & highway, bridge work, tunneling, utility work, commercial structures and
welding, and more.

Those who graduate from the New England Laborers’ Apprenticeship Program will become working members of the Laborers’ International Union of North
America New England Region where they will earn not only middle-class wages but medical and retirement packages to secure the future of not only themselves, but their immediate families.
