Summary by Dirk Langeveld
The Department of Labor will celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, an annual celebration of the “earn as you learn” apprenticeship model, from Nov. 15-21.
The occasion has occurred since 2015, and the DOL has announced future dates through 2024. National Apprenticeship Week encourages business leaders, educational institutions, career seekers, and others to “demonstrate support for apprenticeships in preparing a highly skilled, diverse workforce to meet the talent needs of employers and train Americans for good-paying jobs across multiple industries.”
Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said participants can network with others and share ideas and solutions for encouraging apprenticeship and workforce retraining. Walsh said National Apprenticeship Week also supports the Biden administration’s goals of supporting infrastructure development and registered apprenticeships.
