Registered Apprenticeship and the Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) - What Does it All Mean?

Registered Apprenticeship and the Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) - What Does it All Mean? 

Understanding how a national Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) gets on the Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) and why that is important will be the focus of this session. Unpacking whether the state ETPL includes a national Registered Apprenticeship program, or if extra steps need to be taken at the local level to include a Registered Apprenticeship program, or if WIOA funds can be used on Registered Apprenticeship if the RAP doesn't appear on the ETPL will be addressed.

Embedding Equity in Your Registered Apprenticeship: Strategies to Advance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in RA

Embedding Equity in Your Registered Apprenticeship: Strategies to Advance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in RA

Implementing equity in Registered Apprenticeship programs is challenging. It takes vulnerability to have difficult conversations and make the organizational change necessary to support the impact stated within your organizational “Commitment to Diversity.” This work can be messy, and we learn through missteps and challenges.

For Registered Apprenticeship to achieve its promise as a driver of workforce equity, apprentices themselves must be at the center of program design with the strong support of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) practices.

This National Apprenticeship Week, join JFF’s conversation with a Registered Apprenticeship employer, a community partner, and an apprentice to learn about the journey of implementing DEIA practices in Registered Apprenticeship, including:

  • How to embed practices that support diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in Registered Apprenticeship programs
  • How partnerships can provide the support and expertise in implementing DEIA practices
  • How these changes ultimately impact the apprentice experience

As part of the event, you’ll learn more about JFF’s Program Design Framework for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in Registered Apprenticeship.

Whether your program or organization is large or small, union or non-union, this webinar will offer promising practices to advance equity and access for all workers and learners.
