2 Talent Development The Greater New Orleans Region is addressing its place in the national and global economy through recognition that skilled workers are one of the essential elements for success. Around the world, economic viability lies in the ability to provide a quality supply of workers to meet the market’s demand. Registered Apprenticeship provides that supply. Historically the region’s advantage was a large supply of low cost labor, but that has changed.

Sector strategies aligned with regional economic development priorities. 75% of the high wage/demand occupations require less than a 4 year degree, but more than a HS Diploma. Registered Apprenticeship often fills this educational need, depending on the occupation.
