Apprenticeship Forward Series

On May 4th-5th, 2017, New America and its sponsoring partners hosted the Apprenticeship Forward Conference,  bringing together policymakers, industry, labor, and education and workforce practitioners to share insights and ideas about the state and future of apprenticeship in the United States.

As the field came together to contemplate a path to a future where more Americans participate in high-quality apprenticeships, we considered some big questions:

  • Who is apprenticeship for?

  • How will industry lead?

  • How will education view and embrace apprenticeship?

  • What is the role of public policy?

  • How can we assure quality?

The Center on Education & Skills at New America ran series of blogs and articles to explore these issues leading up to the Conference. We look forward to sharing our thoughts as the field develops, and hope you’ll stay tuned here and join the discussion @NewAmericaEd.
