WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced that the sixth annual National Apprenticeship Week will occur from November 8 through 14, 2020.

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is a nationwide celebration that gives businesses, communities, and educators the opportunity to highlight their apprenticeship programs and apprentices, and demonstrate the value apprenticeship programs offer businesses, careers seekers, and the community as a whole. The weeklong initiative will focus on themes and industries in which apprenticeships are making a significant difference for American workers, including technology, healthcare, financial services, advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity, and more.

“National Apprenticeship Week 2020 will highlight the ways in which apprenticeships can help Americans succeed in our nation’s major industries,” said Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training John Pallasch. “As our nation gets back to work, apprenticeships can help workers earn an income while learning new skills that will help them succeed in the recovering economy.”

Apprenticeships are industry-driven, high-quality career pathways in which employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and transferable credentials. The Department oversees both Registered Apprenticeship Programs and Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Programs, which assist employers in developing an immediate pool of workers with the right skills for available jobs and allow workers to get a paycheck from day one while they build skills in a new career.

The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster, promote and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.
