Coastal Pines Technical College is kicking off the celebration of the U.S. Department of Labor’s 9th Annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) with a social media blast of information on Registered Apprenticeships.
NAW was established by the U.S. Department of Labor to showcase and promote high-quality, inclusive, in-demand career pathway opportunities through Registered Apprenticeship. Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week gives employers, including sponsors and providers, the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities, and apprentices so that career seekers can learn more about the benefits of Registered Apprenticeship and the programs that are available in their communities.
The theme for NAW 2023 is “Registered Apprenticeship: Superhighway to Good Jobs.” This theme reflects the prominence that Registered Apprenticeship has received as a proven and industry-driven training model for overcoming a variety of workforce and education challenges. Registered Apprenticeships are recognized as a key strategy to improving job quality and creating access to good-paying jobs for all. It addresses some of our nation’s pressing workforce shortages in teaching, advanced manufacturing, clean energy, cybersecurity, and other high-priority sectors.
Coastal Pines currently has a Registered Apprenticeship program available for students who are interested in on-the-job training and getting a kick start with their career while completing their program requirements. Employers in the 13-county service delivery area for Coastal Pines can become registered apprenticeship partners and begin building a pipeline of qualified and educated workers for the future workplace.
