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.

Pre-Apprenticeship Programs: Results from a National Survey

The Aspen Institute's Workforce Strategies Initiative recently conducted a nationwide census project aimed at pre-apprenticeship programs in the construction trades. Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the survey explored the number, geographic location, and scope of construction pre-apprenticeship programs. The survey generated responses from 260 pre-apprenticeship program leaders from across the United States. The research paper describing the results of the survey covers topics such as program size, organizational types and affiliations, the range of services provided, the current challenges programs face and the demographic groups the programs serve. To build on this work, WSI has received a grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundation to interview a select group of leaders from some of the nation's most successful pre-apprenticeship programs. The results of these interviews will provide a more in-depth analysis of successful program models and promising practices in pre-apprenticeship programs. In conjunction with the results from the survey, the interview results ultimately will provide decision-makers and stakeholders with a picture of several different approaches to pre-apprenticeship programs and strategies across the U.S. To learn more about WSI's research on construction pre-apprenticeship programs, download the report.

The Benefits and Challenges of Registered Apprenticeship: The Sponsors’ Perspective

This is a study ETA commissioned by Robert Lerman of the Urban Institute and American University, “The Benefits and Challenges of Registered Apprenticeship: The Sponsors’ Perspective.” Findings show that 97 percent of Registered Apprenticeship sponsors—employers and labor-management programs alike—are highly satisfied with the model and would recommend it to other businesses. More than 80 percent of sponsors say that they use Registered Apprenticeship to meet their need for skilled workers. Another 72 percent say that Registered Apprenticeship helps them show which workers have needed skills; and 68 percent feel that the model raises productivity, strengthens worker morale and pride and improves worker safety. Few other publicly funded workforce programs have this level of satisfaction from employers and labor-management partnerships.

The Simple Solution to Tackle Youth Unemployment

Companies used to train college graduates and help them learn the skills they needed on the job, but those days have largely passed. All too frequently, students graduate without tangible job skills and loaded with debt. They’ve fallen into what I call the training gap. It’s time for the U.S. to tackle youth unemployment by borrowing from the apprenticeship programs we have developed at Siemens in Germany.

Student apprenticeships may reflect education's future

We may be looking at a future with closer links among K-12 schools, community colleges and private employers, influenced by the European apprenticeship model. It's one where the "college for all" mantra yields to a recognition that for many students, training for skilled jobs is more meaningful than a four-year degree. And it's one where promising students can start earning right away - sometimes while they're in high school - rather than taking on college debt.
