NAW stands as a nationwide celebration uniting employers, industry associations, labor organizations, community-based entities, workforce partners, education providers, and government leaders in acknowledging the significance of Registered Apprenticeship. It serves as a platform to highlight the triumphs and significance of Registered Apprenticeship in rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities. This year, NAW’s theme, “Registered Apprenticeship: Superhighway to Good Jobs,” underscores the prominent position of Registered Apprenticeship as a proven, industry-driven training model.
NAW presents an opportunity to emphasize how Registered Apprenticeship creates a crucial talent pipeline, addressing some of our nation’s most pressing workforce challenges.
