Maher & Maher is pleased to announce the ApprenticeshipUSA Toolkit, which we have designed for the Department of Labor to benefit workforce agencies and their partners throughout the country. This toolkit provides resources to help the public workforce system use apprenticeship as a talent development strategy. It is an action-oriented solution that uses customized technical assistance to meet the challenges of public workforce systems.
The Toolkit has been designed to help workforce development professionals at every level of the workforce system. For example, the toolkit includes:
In addition to the ApprenticeshipUSA Toolkit, we also helped design the Pre-Apprenticeship Guide: Pathways for Women into High-Wage Careers. The goal of this guide is to help community-based organizations (CBOs) open opportunities for low-skilled women and to develop career pathways that change their lives by providing good wages, benefits, and opportunities for advancement. Through examples of strategies and resources used by CBOs, this guide helps expand opportunities for women in non-traditional occupations such as transportation, green building technology, carpentry/electrical/plumbing, and advanced manufacturing.
The following are examples of challenges addressed by the guide and solutions provided:
Both of these toolkits represent Maher & Maher’s comprehensive approach to helping their clients reach goals using a client-specific strategy.
