Registered Apprenticeship: Job Seekers with Disabilities Please Apply!

Thursday, December 03, 2020
3:00pm - 4:00pm ET

Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can 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 webinar will offer an introduction to registered apprenticeship. We will share what distinguishes apprenticeships from other types of work-based learning, explore the benefits for all stakeholders, share different models, and highlight promising programs from the field. We’ll be joined by Mitchell Harp and Melissa Stowasser from Trident Technical College in Charleston, SC, and Cindy Lennon from Able-Disabled Advocacy in San Diego, CA.

Participants will learn:

  • 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
  • How to locate apprenticeship programs available in their region and make referrals
