IBM offers several Pre-Apprenticeship Programs designed as a bridge to a new technology career. These self-paced, pre-recorded, online learning programs are perfect for students, those new to the workforce, or those who are unemployed or underemployed.
One popular choice is the IBM Z® mainframe/enterprise computing pre-apprenticeship.
A Pre-Apprenticeship is a great way to gain foundational IT skills and put yourself in position to apply for a full apprenticeship (or a full-time position) with an IBM client. If you’re ready to move on from a hospitality or retail job, or you’re returning to the workforce after raising a family, a pre-apprenticeship is a chance to “try before you buy” and see if a career path in IT is right for you. You’ll gain foundational knowledge of IT concepts and skills to help determine your aptitude and attitude for a full-time technology role.
Our pre-apprenticeship programs are a direct pipeline to full-time positions with IBM employer partners. Hiring companies include major banking institutions. Employers love the fact that successful pre-apprentices have already demonstrated their determination to succeed in IT and represent a much more diverse pool of talent than traditional employment sources.
Just as with a full apprenticeship, you will have a Personal Success Coach to guide you and monitor your progress, and a pre-apprenticeship will cost you nothing.
