National Apprenticeship Week is a U.S. Department of Labor project that takes place from Nov. 12 to 18. The national celebration “offers leaders in business, labor, education, and other critical partners a chance to express their support for apprenticeship,” according to the labor department’s website. “The week-long event highlights the benefits of apprenticeship in preparing a highly-skilled workforce to meet the talent needs of employers across diverse industries.”
