Work-Based Learning Policy: 50-State Scan

Work-based learning opportunities are a critical tool for filling skills gaps for positions that require some education or training past high school. This scan from the National Skills Coalition identifies the policies that all 50 states and the District of Columbia have implemented to encourage work-based learning opportunities. The authors found that 35 states had at least one of the following policies: expansion initiatives, employer subsidies, pre-apprenticeships or youth apprenticeships, secondary student work-based learning opportunities, or policies supporting postsecondary classroom instruction for apprenticeships.
