Why Apprenticeship Programs?
The tech industry is primed for apprenticeship success given the current scarcity of computer engineers. Combining classroom instruction with on-the-job training, apprenticeship programs can help companies quickly bring new and more diverse talent into the workplace. The IT apprenticeship program Apprenti has found that 84% of their tech apprentice applicants come from untapped talent pools—including people with disabilities, veterans, women, and minorities.

Apprenti provides a proven, reliable pipeline for underrepresented groups such as people with disabilities, minorities, women and veterans to gain training, certification, and placement within the talent-hungry tech industry. Through our innovative selection, certification and hiring process, we are bridging the talent gap and meeting the demands of the tech industry’s growing workforce.
