In the States
Work Based Learning Academy
The Work-Based Learning Academy to support state teams in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Washington, in developing state policy proposals and advocacy strategies to expand work-based learning to low-income communities.
Some state teams will work on state programs to support work-based learning intermediaries that can help employers establish apprenticeship and work-based learning programs. Other teams will focus on state polices to provide support services, like childcare, transportation, and career navigation, to help people succeed in work-based learning.
Southern States Initiative
National Skills Coalition will work intensively with partners in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee to put forward state policies that help workers and businesses in those states to get the skills they need to compete. NSC will also be working with partners in Mississippi and Texas to support in-state discussions on apprenticeship and work-based learning.
