Apprenticeships provide learners with real-world work experience and help them develop the skills, abilities and knowledge necessary for sustainable career pathways. This report from the US Department of Labor provides the findings from a presidential task force charged with identifying strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeship programs are insufficient. The report outlines recommendations for apprenticeship expansion related to:
• education and credentialing,
• attracting businesses to apprenticeships,
• expanding access,
• equity and career awareness, and
• administrative and regulatory strategies.
This is a useful resource for stakeholders looking to improve and expand apprenticeships to prepare learners for high wage, high skill, high demand careers.
