Workforce Partnership

Learn More about Sector Partnerships


The strength of the sector partnership is its unique ability to foster collaboration. Successful earn-and-learn stategies are born from collaboration among partners - businesses, workforce intermediaries, educational institutions, the public workforce system, and other key community organizations. Every partner has a critical role to play: Manufacturers: - Identify the skills and knowledge that apprentices need to learn - Provide industry and/or workforce specific expertise (e.g. curriculum development) - Hire new workers, or select current employees, to be apprentices - Provide on-the-job training - Identify and engage experienced mentors to work with apprentices Educational Institutions: - Develop curriculum for related instruction and deliver to apprentices - Aggregate demand for apprentices - Offer access to financial resources, outreach Public Workforce Systems - Develop sector and career pathway strategies utilizing apprenticeships - Recruit and screen candidates to be apprentices - Provide support services - Contribute funding for OJT training or related instruction
