Bringing opportunity to our Regional workforce

Greater Washington Apprentice Network

Bringing opportunity to our regional workforce

In the Fall of 2020, great minds at NVC, Aon, and Accenture came together and created The Greater Washington Apprentice Network. The Network's mission is to help employers in the Region explore and develop an apprentice-based model of recruitment and training.

Apprenticeships offer an opportunity to “earn and learn,” meaning that employees receive needed on-the-job training while still earning a living. While some skills are well suited to be developed within an educational environment, others, including soft skills such as team building and leadership, can best be developed within the workplace.

Through apprentice programs, Employers can impart key skills and train workers in their own methods and techniques, the cost of which can be recovered through employee loyalty and retention, providing the kind of workplace the 21st century workforce expects: diverse, inclusive, collaborative, and innovative.

The Greater Washington Apprentice Network brings together employers, academic institutions, public and private sectors. Employers gain access to best practices from organizational peers, sources of prospective apprentice candidates, support services, academic institutions, and training resources.
