SWTWC identified apprenticeship programs as a best practice for recruiting, retaining, and training the transportation workforce.
- SWTWC has found that those who participate in apprenticeship programs tend to earn more throughout the course of their career. In addition, agencies that offer apprenticeships economize on recruitment and training costs and can directly address critical skill gaps in their workforce.
Thus, SWTWC will host a series of webinars primarily targeted at transportation agencies to help them create and implement apprenticeship programs. These webinars will double as resources for job-seekers to learn about opportunities, connect with industry leaders, and develop strategies for finding an apprenticeship.
The projected increase in demand for this action plan’s six targeted occupations are as follows:
Apprenticeship programs will function as part of a broader strategy to meet the projected increase in demand for these six targeted occupations.
