Funds for IT & Tech-Adjacent Apprenticeships and Training
To fill critical openings in Massachusetts’ booming IT field, the MCRWB has 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 tech-related apprenticeships to unemployed, underemployed, and incumbent workers through 2024.
