Registered Apprenticeship: Job Seekers with Disabilities Please Apply!

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 provided an introduction to registered apprenticeship. We shared what distinguishes apprenticeships from other types of work-based learning, explored the benefits for all stakeholders, shared different models, and highlighted promising programs from the field. We were 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.
