National Apprenticeship Week is a nationwide celebration that brings together business leaders, career seekers, labor, educational institutions, and other partners to demonstrate their support for apprenticeship.

NAW also provides apprenticeship sponsors with the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities, and apprentices in their community. 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. NAW will be held on November 8-14, 2020.

Last year, the fifth annual National Apprenticeship Week took place November 11 – 17, 2019, and brought together thousands of partners from business, labor, education, government, and other institutions to celebrate apprenticeship and share the many benefits apprenticeship programs offer the American workforce.

With more than 1,200 events and proclamations around the country, NAW presented the chance for apprenticeship champions to showcase their successes and demonstrate how apprenticeship programs help businesses thrive and prepare American workers for a variety of careers.
