Additionally, the mayors of Caldwell, Idaho Falls, Nampa, Meridian and Pocatello have proclaimed Nov. 15-21 as Apprenticeship Week in their municipalities.
The 7th annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) taking place Nov. 15 – 21, 2021, is a nationwide celebration where industry, labor, equity, workforce, education and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship for re-building our economy and supporting underserved communities. NAW is an opportunity to highlight how Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, provides a critical talent pipeline that can help address some of our nation’s pressing workforce challenges such as responding to critical supply chain demands and supporting a clean energy workforce, modernizing our cybersecurity response, addressing public health issues and rebuilding our country’s infrastructure.
