On November 14, the U.S. Department of Labor kicked off National Apprenticeship Week and released the ODEP #ApprenticeshipWorks Video Series. Apprenticeship is an important strategy for job seekers looking to punch their ticket to the middle class and for businesses seeking skilled workers who can flourish in the global economy. Today, apprenticeship programs also extend beyond traditional trades, thriving in high-growth industries like information technology and healthcare.
The ODEP #ApprenticeshipWorks Video Series features apprentices with and without disabilities (Recruits) and their apprenticeship sponsors (Sponsors) talking about how apprenticeship works for them and how it can work for other job seekers and businesses across the country. Videos are available in English and Spanish with captioning and audio introduced versions. To highlight the videos, a recruit and a sponsor who are featured in them penned a blog about their thoughts on the benefits of apprenticeship.
