Agencies Gearing Up for National Apprenticeship Week 2016

More than 350 activities are scheduled for the Nov. 14-20 week around the country. This is the second national week to highlight apprentices and employers' apprentice programs.

More than 350 activities are scheduled for next week's National Apprenticeship Week. The Nov. 14-20 week, to be marked around the country, is the second national week to highlight apprentices and employers' apprentice programs.

Last year, the inaugural National Apprenticeship Week featured more than 300 events in 47 states, and President Obama kicked it off the week with a Presidential Proclamation, which sparked 57 more state and local proclamations.

The Labor Department's Employment and Training Administration encourages employers to take part by hosting events such as:

  • Apprentice graduations
  • Business open houses
  • High school career fairs
  • Apprenticeship signing days
  • Skills competitions
  • Industry roundtables

This year's week gives employers, education, industry associations, labor, elected officials, and other partners the opportunity to highlight how Registered Apprenticeship meets their needs for a skilled workforce, according to the agency.
