ApprenticePath is proud to support the 2023 US Apprenticeship Week (Nov 13-19) theme – “Registered Apprenticeship: Superhighway to Good Jobs
As an approved U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Apprenticeship Ambassador, our team is super excited to participate in and support the 2023 US National Apprenticeship Week initiative (NAW2023), November 13-19, 2023. We are creating and posting our supporting proclamation.
The ninth annual NAW is taking place during Nov 13-19. NAW is a nationwide initiative and celebration where industry, labor, workforce, education, and government leaders host events to highlight the successes, value, and potential of registered apprenticeships for re-building our economy, advancing racial and gender equality, and supporting underserved communities. This year NAW’s theme is “Registered Apprenticeship: Superhighway to Good Jobs,” to reflect the prominence that Registered Apprenticeship has received as a proven and industry driven training model that expedites the pathway into good jobs and improves diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the workplace.
Registered Apprenticeship is recognized as a key strategy to improving job quality and creating access to good-paying jobs for all, including populations historically underrepresented – women, people of color, and individuals with a disability – and underserved populations, such as youth and young adults. It addresses some of our nation’s pressing workforce shortages in teaching, advanced manufacturing, clean energy, cybersecurity, and other high-priority sectors.
Our approval by the U.S. government as apprenticeship ambassador in recognition of our role in promoting, expanding, and diversifying Registered Apprenticeship is very meaningful to us as a startup platform focused on Transforming lives by unleashing the power of the 21st century apprenticeships! It affirms our role in evangelizing the apprenticeship programs in the US.
Our platform’s curated listings cover all the below five NAW2023 themes. Using our selection/filter criteria (Bright Outlook jobs, Categories), you can search specifically for these opportunities.
• Registered Apprenticeship for Youth
• Registered Apprenticeship in New and Emerging Industries (Bright Outlook jobs)
