The 7th annual National Apprenticeship Week is Nov. 15-21! NAW is a celebration where industry, labor, equity, workforce, education and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship. This year will focus on how apprenticeships area rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equity and supporting underserved communities.
Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, provides a critical talent pipeline for our economy. Apprenticeships are helping address some of our nation’s pressing workforce challenges, from responding to critical supply chain demands and supporting a clean energy workforce, to modernizing our cybersecurity response, addressing public health issues and rebuilding our country’s infrastructure.
