Expanding and Funding IT & Tech-Adjacent Apprenticeships and Training
To fill critical openings in the Commonwealth’s booming IT field, the MCRWB recently partnered with Clark University’s Tech Quest Apprenticeship program. The U.S. Department of Labor-funded initiative involves workforce development boards and training partners across America to provide 4,000 pre-apprenticeships and 1,000 IT and IT-related apprenticeships to unemployed, underemployed, and incumbent workers through 2024.
Workers are matched with employers via existing apprenticeship programs, getting on-the-job and related training, and increasing their wages and promotability.
CE-Oh!: Free, ten-week virtual business and entrepreneurship training program designed for unemployed and underemployed individuals seeking to build their portfolio of skills and gain economic traction.
