WHAT IS NATIONAL APPRENTICESHIP WEEK?
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is a national celebration that offers leaders in business, labor, education, and other critical partners a chance to demonstrate their support for apprenticeship. NAW also gives apprenticeship sponsors the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities, and apprentices in their community. The week-long event highlights the benefits of apprenticeship in preparing a highly-skilled workforce to meet the talent needs of employers across diverse industries.
There are many ways to participate in the National Apprenticeship Week movement. Examples include:
- Apprentice Graduations
- Business Open Houses
- High School Career Fairs
- Apprenticeship Signing Days
- Skills Competitions
- Industry Roundtable Events
