Building a Robust Infrastructure Workforce Through CTE and Apprenticeship

  • 122 Cannon House Office Building (map)

The Congressional Career and Technical Education Caucus
Invites you to a briefing on
Building a Robust Infrastructure Workforce
Through CTE and Apprenticeship

Thursday, April 25th, 2019
3-4pm
122 Cannon Building

Rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure will require more than investments in bridges, roads, and waterways; it will require the development of a workforce that can design, build, and maintain that infrastructure. The Brookings Institution estimates that 3 million additional workers will be needed for the nation’s infrastructure in the next decade, and Transportation Secretary Chao has testified that “we will probably not have enough skilled trades workers to address all the infrastructure needs.”

Career and technical education (CTE) and apprenticeships are proven workforce development strategies that provide individuals with the education and work-based learning they need for success in high-skill, high-demand infrastructure careers. Join the CTE Caucus for an expert panel discussion on the importance of investing in these programs to build and maintain our nation’s infrastructure.
