Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, mentorship, and a portable credential. For job seekers with disabilities, apprenticeship offers a model that promotes on-the-job learning and program supports that can offer a viable pathway to a well-paying career.
This webinar provided an introduction to registered apprenticeship. We shared what distinguishes apprenticeships from other types of work-based learning, explored the benefits for all stakeholders, shared different models, and highlighted promising programs from the field.
