Thank you for celebrating the 8th Annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW)! Watch the kickoff video from Secretary of Labor Walsh for some exciting announcements. We now look forward to the 9th Annual NAW: November 13-19, 2023! It’s never too early to start planning.
What is National Apprenticeship Week?
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.
