21st Century Vision for Registered Apprenticeship

During the Summer of 2012, the Secretary of Labor challenged the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship (ACA) to develop recommendations that leverage the Registered Apprenticeship model and its system of over 250,000 employers, joint labor-management organizations, and industry and educational partners to help ensure America stays competitive in today's global economy. Through months of hard work, the ACA developed the "Shared Vision for Increasing Opportunity, Innovation, and Competitiveness for American Workers and Employers: A Report from the Secretary of Labor’s Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship.” This report reflects their recommendations for advancing Registered Apprenticeship into the 21st Century. We thank the ACA for the hard work and dedication they put into producing these recommendations. Read more on the report and download it in full Here.
