National Apprenticeship Week: California’s Inclusive Healthcare Apprenticeships
Healthcare workers care for all of us during some of the toughest chapters in our lives. California is investing in this industry by creating more earn-and-learn pathways into these essential careers. Join us for a National Apprenticeship Week 2022 event, where representatives from Kaiser Permanente, Dignity Health, and two Dental offices will speak to their experience employing apprentices and how apprenticeship is a critical component of their talent solution. In addition, we will feature learning from an inclusive preapprenticeship program into EMT and Paramedic apprenticeships with California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee. California Labor Secretary Natalie Palugyai will kick off the event, speaking specifically to the value of apprenticeship for rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equality, building a pipeline to quality jobs, and supporting underserved communities. Come learn about the innovative investments our state has made in expanding apprenticeship in healthcare and hear from employers, apprentices, educators, and policymakers all creating new opportunities and pathways into the healthcare workforce.
