Apprenticeship Navigators promote apprenticeships as an effective tool for developing a workforce and are an asset to getting an apprenticeship program started. Apprenticeship Navigators serve as a key point of contact and assist partners throughout the process, from concept to implementation. They support existing or foster new partnerships and develop an extensive network of stakeholders at all levels of the public and private sector within the region to identify opportunities for program expansion and promotion. Navigators implement a targeted approach to business engagement. The Navigators build capacity by developing and strengthening the knowledge, skills, abilities, processes, and resources that businesses, educational institutions, local workforce areas, and/or community partners need to create new or expand existing apprenticeship programs. The objective of the Apprenticeship Navigators is to expand employer and intermediary program sponsorship in existing and new occupational areas within the region.
