DOL Webinar: American Apprenticeship Initiative - Advancing Workforce System and Registered Apprenticeship Partnerships

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On September 18, 2014 (EST)

The U.S. Department of Labor is hosting two webinars Part 1 is scheduled for September 25, 2014, at 2:00 pm, EST, and Part 2 is scheduled for October 9, 2014, at 2:00 pm, EST. The American Apprenticeship Initiative was launched to help more workers participate in Registered Apprenticeship and to advance collaboration between apprenticeship, the public workforce system, and other critical partners. Registered Apprenticeship is an “earn and learn” model that offers the public workforce system a proven strategy for meeting the needs of business and increasing workers’ skills and earnings. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, with a focus on services to employers, work-based learning, and connections to apprenticeship, offers further opportunities to advance Registered Apprenticeship and workforce system partnerships.

As part of the American Apprenticeship Initiative, the U.S. Department of Labor will launch a $100 million grant competition for the public workforce system, and other stakeholders. These grant awards will invest in partnerships that launch new apprenticeship models in high-growth fields, align apprenticeships with pathways for career advancement, and scale innovative apprenticeship models.
