Public Sector Apprenticeship: Improving Work for Governments and Residents

Abstract

Public sector apprenticeships are a powerful and underutilized tool for workforce and economic development. When state and local governments create apprenticeship programs for roles where hiring is a challenge, they benefit from an infusion of talent. At the same time, apprentices receive benefits by earning wages, learning new skills, and building valuable work experience. A new fact sheet from the Urban Institute provides an overview of public sector apprenticeships in the US and highlights examples of three public sector programs which show the variety of available opportunities.
