Over the last three years, U.S. employers have added over 150,000 new apprentices, helping to build on the 80-year history of Registered Apprenticeship. This tried and true training model is now being expanded and transformed into an innovative approach being put to the test in classrooms, labs, and boardrooms throughout the country.
To harness this momentum and address ongoing workforce challenges that employers and jobseekers face, Jobs for the Future is leveraging more than 30 years of experience at the intersection of education and workforce programs to establish the Center for Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning.
The Center will bring together national resources, proven and promising practices, and technical assistance in a central place to support the development of successful apprenticeship and other work-based learning strategies. The Center will also pilot and deploy new solutions designed to drive the adoption and scale of these critical approaches to talent development.
