Celebrating Registered Apprenticeship Week in Washington State

With the number of people involved in registered apprenticeship programs statewide reaching an all time high, join us in celebrating this week as Registered Apprenticeship Week in Washington!

Gov. Jay Inslee signed a proclamation declaring Nov. 15-20 as Registered Apprenticeship Week in Washington State.

Between September 2020 and August 2021, there were 21,710 apprentices in Washington state. The total would make registered apprenticeship programs the third largest “school” in the state behind only the University of Washington and Washington State University.

“Apprenticeship programs are thriving across the state,” said Jody Robbins, Apprenticeship Program manager for the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I). “We’re encouraged to see a growing number of employers, educators, and other workforce partners get involved.”

“Employers need a reliable talent pipeline and workers need pathways into rewarding careers,” Robbins said. “Registered apprenticeship programs provide an opportunity for employers and workers, boosting our entire economy.”
