Center for
and Work-Based

Sign up for updates on the Center and this exciting modern apprenticeship movement.
Supporting strategies that help employers, advance our economy, and help workers from all backgrounds access pathways to successful careers.

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.

"At JFF, we believe that apprenticeship and work-based learning are among the surest pathways to provide students and workers from all backgrounds with the skills and knowledge they need to acquire well-paying jobs, while also helping employers 'grow their own' skilled workforce. To achieve its potential, the Center will support employers and jobseekers, guiding the field toward realizing the value and promise of apprenticeship and other forms of work-based learning."
