The Delaware Department of Labor will mark its Fifth Annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) with three open house events, one in each county throughout the state from 6 -7 p.m. to showcase the value of apprenticeship in the community.
Labor Secretary Cerron Cade will be attending Adult Education Apprenticeship Open Houses for legislators, employers, school leadership officials to meet with apprentices, educators, and one another to learn more about Delaware’s commitment to apprenticeships in various trades.
“Apprenticeship programs can provide paths into the middle class for Delaware workers and their families,” said Gov. John Carney. “Delaware businesses that participate in apprenticeship programs help develop a strong local workforce and strengthen our economy. Thank you to the Delaware Department of Labor for highlighting the importance of apprenticeships during National Apprenticeship Week, and to all of the trades and businesses that offer these important training programs.”

“The benefits of registered apprenticeship are substantial for Delaware job seekers and job creators,” said Cade. “This earn and learn model enables employers to fill open jobs, improve productivity and profitability, and reduce turnover while providing the Delaware workforce with pathways to start new careers and acquire the skills necessary for good jobs.”
