WHAT INDUSTRIES CAN PROVIDE APPRENTICESHIPS?
Nearly all! Apprenticeships work for companies who are facing many challenges: diversifying their workforce, have an aging workforce close to retirement, want to close the gap between their workers credentials and skills, want to keep pace with technology, and more.

As an extension of the 2019 data package update, a set of new dynamic data tools have been developed to support regional planning work. These tools are intended to act as a resource for users to compare data across regions and generate insights beyond the analysis in their regional data package, Apprenticeships. Managed by the Executive Office of Labor & Workforce Development, this data is designed to assist in the forecasting and skill development needed for a strong economy.
