The 2023 ApprenticeshipNH Summit brought together more than 250 career seekers, employers, community partners and state agencies to celebrate apprenticeship programs as a successful workforce expansion solution in New Hampshire. Hosted by ApprenticeshipNH, a workforce program of the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), the comprehensive event focused on strengthening the Granite State’s workforce and culminated National Apprenticeship Week. Held at NHTI – Concord’s community college, the Nov. 17 event included an apprenticeship fair, Champion Recognitions highlighting 11 prominent businesses and individuals, panel discussions, and interactive workshops that provided insights and resources needed to participate in apprenticeship programs.
“ApprenticeshipNH supports the Community College System of New Hampshire’s mission by creating career pathways in traditional and non-traditional sectors across the state,” said Dr. Chuck Lloyd, vice chancellor of CCSNH. “Since ApprenticeshipNH launched in 2017, the program has been widely successful and impactful, building 100 apprenticeship programs and assisting 1,300 apprentices with scholarships and support service funds to help create successful and impactful apprenticeship programs. We are expanding our program and working towards building a sustainable infrastructure for Registered Apprenticeship pathways all while working with communities to ensure these opportunities are accessible to everyone.”
