Broadening the apprenticeship pipeline

By Melissa Johnson, Katie Spiker, December 11, 2018

Apprenticeship and other forms of work-based learning are important tools for helping workers acquire skills employers need. To reach the most workers and businesses, more work needs to be done to diversify the apprenticeship pipeline to include more women, low-wage workers, and parents of young children. Join NSC staff Melissa Johnson and Katie Spiker and our partners from Mississippi Women in Construction, Julie Kuklinski, and Mississippi Low-Income Childhood Initiative, Matt Williams, to discuss the importance of affordable childcare to ensuring a broad pipeline of workers have access to and success in pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs and how Mississippi is working towards this goal.
