The Office of Work-Based Learning and Apprenticeship, located within the Department of Workforce Development and part of Gov. Holcomb’s NextLevel Agenda, serves to develop and implement a framework of various work-based learning pathways for both youth and adult populations. To accomplish this, the office will concentrate on three objectives: First, coordinate efforts and partner with the U.S. Department of Labor to expand registered apprenticeships. Second, develop flexible and scalable programs that focus on the state’s key economic sectors and regional high-wage, high-demand occupations. Third, build public-private partnerships to increase business and industry engagement with education systems.
