This engaging, practical webinar provides staff at state VR agencies with an overview of key first steps they can take to begin exploring partnerships with registered apprenticeship programs.
An expert on this topic from Jobs for the Future, and staff from the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, will lay out the steps that state VR agencies can take to identify registered apprenticeship programs in their area. The presenters will also give recommendations for conducting outreach to those programs, explain the specific components of registered apprenticeship to explore in these initial conversations, and clarify the role that state VR agencies can play in these programs.
