Supporting Employers

Shifting to Virtual Apprenticeship Structures

PIA currently works with five apprenticeship intermediary organizations including:

(In the coming months we will continue to add additional apprenticeship intermediary partners, specifically those focused on training apprentices in the clean energy sector.)

PIA aims to advance inclusive apprenticeship programs that meet employer needs. To that end, we facilitate collaboration between relevant organizations, including employers, apprenticeship intermediaries,  state and workforce agencies, educational entities, and advocacy groups, to achieve our vision of enabling job seekers with disabilities to gain credentials and skills to succeed in growing industries.

As we continue on this path, we aim to expand on the resources we create to support employers, apprenticeship intermediaries, and people with disabilities. In 2021, we will release a companion resource to dive into the business case for creating inclusive apprenticeships that will outline the benefits of investing in these programs.
