Early Care & Education Pathways to Success (ECEPTS) is a Sector Intermediary and Sponsor of Registered Apprenticeships for the child care and early learning (CCEL) industry. Since its inception in 2019, ECEPTS’ mission has been to advance the rigorous professional development and economic well-being of those who teach, nurture, and support young children and families. Primary strategies include creating and expanding Registered Apprenticeship models for the CCEL workforce, providing far-reaching field building opportunities, and advocating for policy and systems change to advance the economic and professional stature and sustainability of the CCEL industry. In California and nationally, ECEPTS has emerged as an influential leader across three systems: CCEL, workforce development, and registered apprenticeship.
