What is National Apprenticeship Week?

We look forward to celebrating the 8th Annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW): November 14-20, 2022! NAW is a nationwide celebration where industry, labor, equity, workforce, education, and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship for re-building our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities. NAW is an opportunity to highlight how Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, provides a critical talent pipeline that can help to address some of our nation’s pressing workforce challenges such as rebuilding our country’s infrastructure, addressing critical supply chain demands, supporting a clean energy workforce, modernizing our cybersecurity response, and responding to care economy issues.

During National Apprenticeship Week 2022, the U.S. Department of Labor will highlight the following key themes:

  • Monday, Nov. 14: Registered Apprenticeship in New and Emerging Industries
  • Tuesday, Nov. 15: Pre-Apprenticeship and Youth Apprenticeship
  • Wednesday, Nov. 16: Expanding Registered Apprenticeship to Underserved Populations
  • Thursday, Nov. 17: Women in Apprenticeship
  • Friday, Nov. 18: Public Service Apprenticeship and Veterans in Apprenticeship
