VINCENNES, Ind. — More than 150,000 employers and labor-management organizations in the U.S. utilize apprenticeships to develop workforce talent. Vincennes University partners with multiple employers throughout Indiana and across the nation on industry-based apprenticeship programs, providing technical instruction and degree programs. 

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW), November 8-14, 2020, was established by the U.S. Department of Labor to celebrate the impact apprenticeships have in helping Americans learn skills for jobs in growing industries.

"Apprenticeship is a proven way to obtain the skills and knowledge for high-wage, high-demand careers," VU Vice President of Workforce Development and Community Services David Tucker said. "We are proud to support National Apprenticeship Week and showcase Vincennes University’s role in training and educating a skilled workforce in this country."

VU is the training and education partner on apprenticeship programs with employers large and small, including Cummins, General Motors, Caterpillar, and the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), in diesel mechanics, CNC machining, and construction trades.
