With the rise of apprenticeship programming in the public spotlight, the New York Association of Training & Employment Professionals (NYATEP) is seeking feedback directly from New York State employers in four sectors outside of the traditional union-led apprenticeships, for their opinions of apprenticeship as a training option. As the state’s workforce association, they believe collecting information versus working off of anecdotes will be critical as this program expands federally and across the State. To that end, they are collecting data on the perceived barriers held by employers to accessing and registering an apprenticeship program in New York State. The goal is to use this information to recommend policy and programmatic improvements to the NYS Apprenticeship program.
NYATEP has released a survey of employer perceptions about apprenticeship. In order to help ensure they get the kind of data they need, we're asking you to reach out to your employer partners and board members in Advanced Manufacturing, Bio-technology, Technology and Telecommunications and ask them to fill out the survey. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
NYATEP asks that all responses be sent in by August 15th. All responses will be kept confidential, however they plan to circulate the aggregate results to partners in the field. Thus they're asking that you feel free to forward this email along to other partners or industry associations in your network. The more responses they get the better!
