College is far from the only option for Connecticut high schoolers looking to further their training. Some are opting for pre-apprenticeships or work-based learning programs — even before they finish their high school degree.

WSHU’s Ebong Udoma spoke with CT Mirror’s Erica Phillips to discuss her article, “More students, companies are pursuing apprenticeships in CT,” as part of the collaborative podcast Long Story Short. You can read her story here.

Long Story Short takes you behind the scenes at the home of public policy journalism in Connecticut. Each week WSHU’s Ebong Udoma joins us to rundown the Sunday Feature with our reporters. We also present specials on CT Mirror’s big investigative pieces.
