Conference Information

Apprenticeship Forward will focus on three critical challenges facing the expansion of apprenticeship: increasing industry engagement across a range of sectors and firms; addressing equity while diversifying the apprenticeship pipeline; and implementing new public policies that can take apprenticeship to scale. Apprenticeship Forward will feature engaging plenaries and breakout panels as well as interactive discussions between attendees about their efforts within specific industries and with specific groups of students and prospective workers.

Apprenticeship Forward is a joint effort of the National Skills Coalition, New America, AFL-CIO Working for America Institute, Advance CTE, National Association of Workforce Boards, National Fund for Workforce Solutions, National Governors Association, and Urban Institute in collaboration with a number of national foundations who have taken the lead in promoting apprenticeship, including Annie E. Casey Foundation, Joyce Foundation, The JPB Foundation, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Siemens Foundation.
