Since its founding, MEATA has been a vocal advocate for the expanded use of work-based learning as the most effective and least costly means of transferring generational knowledge from older to younger workers while supplementing that knowledge with the latest academic discoveries and advances.
The organization is probably best known for its annual Spring Apprenticeship Conference. At this event, apprenticeship and work-based training representatives from across the state of Michigan are provided unique opportunities to network, collaborate, learn and grow.
Join MEATA for a day packed with valuable apprenticeship information!
We are looking forward to seeing you NOVEMBER 8, 2023 at Oakland Community College to meet industry experts and discuss Educational Training, Workforce Development and Apprenticeship partnerships across the State.
