    Online webinar
    Date: 
    Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:15pm

In honor of Veterans Day and to kick-off National Apprenticeship Week, JFF’s Center for Apprenticeship & Work-Based Learning will host a 75-minute webinar to highlight exemplary apprenticeship programs and policies that facilitate employers tapping into the Veteran talent pool while providing Veterans pathways to good jobs and good wages. 

Join JFF's Center for Apprenticeship & Work-Based Learning in conversation with Fastport, Fujitsu, NOVA (Northern Virginia Community College), and the US Department of Labor's Veterans Employment and Training Service as we examine how apprenticeship programs support Veterans' transition into civilian life—oftentimes building upon the skills they gained while in service. We will also highlight the range of GI Bill benefits Veterans are eligible to receive for participating in approved apprenticeship and work-based learning programs.

With the ongoing expansion of apprenticeship across the nation, numerous employers have focused on strengthening their workforce by providing Veterans with specific apprenticeship opportunities. This webinar will examine the critical ways high-quality apprenticeship programs are an effective tool for Veterans to transition into civilian life following their separation from the military—oftentimes building upon the skills they gained while in service. The webinar will also provide important information on the range of GI Bill benefits Veterans are eligible to receive for participating in approved apprenticeship and work-based learning programs. 

The webinar will feature experts who have operated successful programs, functioned as training providers, employed Veteran apprentices, and helped guide the state approval process. Please join us in honoring our nation’s Veterans participating in apprenticeships.
