Designated Approver’s Weekly Update – November 15, 2021

By Melissa Paloma | Project Manager

Weekly Action Items

  • Set up recruitment pitches!
  • Pass along our open positions (linked below).
  • Contact Noel if you are interested in providing feedback to our WBL-Curriculum! 

Joanna and I have recorded a pitch, use this link to view the video. Feel free to use the video to gauge interest prior or after our in-person pitches!

As a reminder the Ed team will have 1-1 bi-weekly meetings with each school partner. If you have not set up a regular time yet, please do so! Once we have 1-1 bi-weekly meetings set up, we can begin to discuss recruitment! If you already have your 1-1 meeting set up, talk to your CWNY point person to set up recruitment pitches! Also, if you are interested in providing feedback to the curriculum and viewing the lessons as they are created, please contact Noel (

As a reminder, the Ed team will provide a full update on apprentices and the vaccine/testing requirements per company in separate emails. Please be on the  lookout for those updates from your CWNY Ed team point person.  

P.S. CareerWise New York is hiring! Please share these two job descriptions to your network: Director, Educational Partnerships and Manager, Educational Partnerships!



Your CWNY point person will work with you to implement and begin recruitment at your school. In the conversations, let your point person know about your interest in the WBL Curriculum. 

We also added a recruitment pitch to the resources folder. Here is the link to the video and the resources folder.

What to look forward to: in-person pitching, employer engagement events, and our WBL- curriculum that will be released for the Spring semester!

CDI Phase II completed and apprentices are working! If apprentices did not receive their stipend, they should not let the CareerWise training staff know.

For those students who were hired August- September, there is a make-up CDI Phase I training that has 1 Friday left in their training, on top of working M-Thursday! For more on CDI training, click here.

Here is a review of the document students and their families sign as part of entering the apprenticeship program. If you would like a signed copy of the agreement for an apprentice at your school, please let us know!

Cohort 2 (Seniors) Apprentices
All cohort 2 apprentices should ideally be available to work 1-5pm, Monday-Thursday!  If they are scheduled for a 2pm start time and a 1pm release from school, please do keep that schedule. To view Cohort 2 Employer Schedules, click here
