Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to report results of the second phase of the overall Army Apprenticeship Program AAP Evaluation. The second phase of the AAP Evaluation was a survey of soldiers who participated in the AAP. The objectives of the AAP survey were to determine the motivation, attitudes, and expectations of soldiers who participated in the AAP and to collect locator information for a future follow-up survey on soldiers after they transition into a civilian occupation. The second phase involved the development of survey instruments and the collection and analysis of survey data to determine the value of the AAP to soldiers. Study results revealed that soldiers who participate in the AAP enlist for reasons different than other Army soldiers i. e., self-improvement and jobskill training. Soldiers who participate in the AAP are primarily focused on career development. AAP participants have positive perceptions of the value of the AAP on their careers. They also believe that they have benefited more from their Army experience, and they recognize greater significance in the value of Army training and job experience than soldiers who have not participated in the AAP.
