Job Creation: Apprenticeship Expansion

Goal Leaders: Rosemary Lahasky, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration

Laurie Rowe, Senior Advisor, Employment and Training Administration

Goal Statement: Enroll 1 million new apprentices (including registered programs, industry-recognized apprenticeships, and other non-registered programs) over the next five years to enable more Americans to obtain jobs that pay a family-sustaining wage through high quality earn-and-learn opportunities. By September 30, 2019, DOL will enroll 280,000 new apprentices as part of the agency’s broader efforts to promote and expand apprenticeship.

Implementation Action Plans will be available with the Q1 FY 2018 performance update.
