Hear from states on best-practices around work-based learning in the publicly-funded workforce system.

 


Description


Work-based learning is a great option for trade-affected workers because it combines employment and training.  This allows workers to earn wages while training and limit their period of unemployment.  Developing a robust work-based learning strategy can be a challenge.  This webinar is a best-practices presentation by states on what they’ve done to address this.
