Finding and keeping great tech talent is one of the most intractable challenges businesses face today. There are simply not enough qualified people to fill the increasing demand for technical skills. Layer on the need to attract more diverse candidates, and what was once a difficult challenge has become a bidding war for the same small pool of tech talent.

It’s time to look beyond computer science degrees and open your doors to people with a passion for tech, the ability to learn, and the motivation to succeed.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are earn-and-learn programs registered by the Department of Labor, typically lasting 12 months. Apprentices are full-time employees, who are earning while they’re learning. They work through structured training to build technical and professional skills on the job.

Franklin Apprentices are committed, passionate, highly valued contributors. They make an impact from day one and become more productive every day as they develop technical and professional skills. Franklin's clients report apprentices become 80% productive within six months.

FAQs

  • HOW WOULD AN APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM BENEFIT OUR COMPANY?

    Registered Apprenticeship programs help businesses develop highly-skilled employees, reduce turnover rates, increase productivity and lower the cost of recruitment.

  • CAN I HIRE AN APPRENTICE AS A CONTRACTOR?

    Apprentices can be hired as contractors, subject to the requirements of the Registered Apprenticeship Standard which you will adopt by signing the Employer Acceptance Agreement.

  • HOW IS APPRENTICESHIP DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TYPES OF WORK-BASED TRAINING?

    In most jobs, people are hired for the skills they’ve already acquired; in apprenticeships they are hired for the skills they will acquire – at a reduced wage that will increase as they gain competency. Apprentices take classes while they are working, combining technical knowledge with on-the-job learning. At the end of the apprenticeship, they earn industry-recognized certifications and a nationally recognized credential from the U.S. Department of Labor
