Bringing together both industry heads and budding professionals alike, National Apprenticeship Week shines the spotlight on the value and benefits that apprenticeship programs provide, from creating a more knowledgeable workforce to fostering the growth of unique skill sets among industry professionals. It also serves as a platform for apprenticeship sponsors to talk about their programs and for apprenticeship seekers to be introduced to exciting opportunities.
