National Skills Coalition brief, Broadening the apprenticeship pipeline to learn more about how supports like child care and pre-apprenticeship training can be the on-ramp to successful apprenticeships and work-based learning programs.

Child care costs can make pre-apprenticeship programs nearly impossible for women and parents. Together with a lack of occupational skills training and unfamiliarity with job sites or industry, apprenticeships can seem out of reach – particularly for populations that, historically, have had less access to apprenticeships.  

 

But programs that provide access to child care as well as pre-apprenticeship training can open the door for women, parents, and people who might have never considered an apprenticeship.
