An interactive workshop on how to use data to drive decision-making, and how your apprenticeship programs can benefit from using and understanding data. Scaling Apprenticeship through Sector-Based Strategies grantees will share examples of forecasting tools to demonstrate how they are using the tool with sub-grantees to assess their progress, including gaps and barriers.



During the session, you will be able to self-assess your grant’s data-driven readiness. The facilitators will share readiness polling questions and lead discussions about what this may look like for different apprenticeship grants. The facilitators will engage you in discussions on using data analysis and forecasting to help monitor progress, improve processes, and meet grant outcomes. Data-driven analysis can also help to identify promising trends for scalability and sustainability.

In addition, you will:

  1. Become familiar with different data projections and forecasting tools; 
  2. Learn how other grantees are using data to drive decision making;
  3. Apply learning by reviewing a data forecasting scenario and assessing what is missing; and
  4. Consider new ways for your team to use data and forecasting tools to make informed decisions.
