Learn, Earn and Develop


We work with with local community colleges to build curricula that enable our apprentices to complete their studies while working. We pay for tuition, books and fees. You'll spend about 40 hours per week combined in the office and classroom.



Apprentices receive a salary and full-time employee benefits, including health insurance, paid time off and financial assistance for continuing education.



We invest in our colleagues through mentorship, networking and career development opportunities. You'll learn to deliver high-impact work, collaborate with and support colleagues, all while growing your career.

To broaden our commitment, Aon has built relationships with local community networks of employers and non-profit partners to foster a system of support outside the workplace.

How It Started

Launched in the U.S. in 2017 with a cohort of 26 students, the Aon Apprenticeship Program has built a network of employers, non-profit partners, and community colleges to create more than 1,000 Apprenticeship positions in the Chicagoland area alone. Recently, Aon announced an investment of $30 million to expand the Apprenticeship Program to new cities over the next five years and we set a goal of creating 10,000 corporate apprenticeships (within Aon, and beyond) by 2030.

40-Hour Work Week

The 40 hours includes both time in the office and in the classroom (sample schedule below). Apprentices are paid for the full 40 hours, and work with their Aon managers each semester to build a schedule that balances their classes with their working hours.

Sample Schedule

Monday, Wednesday
8:30a.m. - 5:00p.m. Work at Aon

Tuesday, Thursday
8:30a.m. - 3:00p.m. Work at Aon
3:30p.m. - 7p.m. Attend Classes

9:00 - 3:00p.m. Attend Class

Mentorship + Support

In addition to their manager, Early Careers contacts, and the community network of fellow apprentices, Each Apprentice is paired with a designated “Career Navigator.” Career Navigators support Apprentices in balancing work, school and life, and provide personal and professional development.

As a Department of Labor-certified Apprenticeship Program, Aon works closely with local community colleges to build a curriculum that allows Apprentices to complete their studies and apply their knowledge through real-world experience. Aon pays for tuition, books and fees for the Apprentice’s two-year Associate Degree in full. At the same time as they are earning their degree, Apprentices develop vital workplace skills and earn a competitive salary as a full-time Aon employee.

Apprentices attend classes at an Aon-partnered school three days per week in pursuit of their Associate’s degree. The local community network of employers and non-profit partners also fosters a system of support outside of the workplace.
