We are excited to offer access to ETA’s Desk Reference Guide to Work-Based Learning (WBL) for workforce professionals. The short desktop aid offers quick access to information on the various types of WBL available for use by workforce system pros. The Maher Team produced the tool under its WIOA Technical Assistance support contract with the Employment and Training Administration (ETA).
From Registered Apprenticeship to OJT and more, the Guide provides a short tutorial on the various forms of WBL and how they could be properly administered for the benefit of system customers.
“Today’s challenging labor market, characterized by over 6 million un-filled, middle-skilled job openings, requires innovative solutions,” said Richard (“Rick”) D. Maher, the Firm’s Presdient & CEO. “Work-based learning – in all its forms – is a powerful tool for both our System’s customers – job seekers and employers – in that it offers a way to skill-up workers while they earn. Both parties win, and the system wins too, as it brokers a solution that can make a difference for local economies and the people we serve.”
The “Work-Based Learning Overview” is available for download now from ETA’s Innovation and Opportunity Network (ION) – the Agency’s WIOA-related community of practice. Interested professionals can view and download the tool here.
