Exciting times in the Apprenticeship Community! The U.S. Department of Labor, in coordination with the White House, has announced the establishment of the ApprenticeshipUSA LEADERS initiative.
ApprenticeshipUSA offers employers in every industry the tools to develop high-skilled workers to help grow their business. For workers, ApprenticeshipUSA offers opportunities to earn a salary while learning the skills necessary to succeed in high-demand careers. ApprenticeshipUSA exemplifies high standards, instructional rigor and quality training. Whether you are an employer looking to hire, train and retain a skilled workforce, or a worker looking for a new career in a well-paying occupation, ApprenticeshipUSA will help you achieve your goals.
Why join ApprenticeshipUSA as an Apprenticeship LEADER?
Apprenticeships are a great way to develop a pipeline of talented, high-skilled workers to help businesses grow. Through the ApprenticeshipUSA program, we want to share information so that more employers understand how apprenticeship can add value to their businesses and provide greater opportunities for their workers.
That’s why we’re asking you to join the movement and be a LEADER for Apprenticeship.
Apprenticeship LEADERs will work together with the U.S. Department of Labor to share innovative practices and partnerships aimed at expanding apprenticeships within their industries, supply chains, and geographic locations. This is a great opportunity for your organization to receive national recognition as a LEADER in addressing the challenges of developing a skilled workforce and shaping the direction of apprenticeship expansion across the country.
The White House issued an ApprenticeshipUSA LEADERS Fact Sheet to provide additional information.
