LEAD Webinar: Registered Apprenticeship: Job Seekers with Disabilities Please Apply!
Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway. Employers develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, mentorship, and a portable credential. For job seekers with disabilities, apprenticeship offers a model that promotes on-the-job learning and program supports that can offer a viable pathway to a well-paying career.
This LEAD Center December 3rd webinar, Registered Apprenticeship: Job Seekers with Disabilities Please Apply! offered an introduction to registered apprenticeship. Participants learned how registered apprenticeship benefits individuals, employers, and programs; what comprises the essential components of an apprenticeship program; how to differentiate apprenticeship from other work-based learning models; and how to locate apprenticeship programs available in their region and make referrals. Inclusive apprenticeship best practices were highlighted from Trident Technical College and Able-Disabled Advocacy.
