Apprenticeship Partnerships with the Public Sector (June 2020)


Before the appearance of COVID-19, approximately 15 percent of the civilian workforce in California worked for federal, state, or local government. While most apprenticeships in California link apprentices with private sector employers, the public sector also offers opportunities for partnership and network expansion. We will explore the value, risks, and opportunities for partnering with the public sector, as well as strategies for making it happen. Panelists include Josef Preciado and Melissa Fish from American River College, and Oriana Maghoney from San Joaquin County.
