Maryland Digital Apprenticeships Powered By Franklin Apprenticeships

The Maryland Department of Labor understands: A lack of qualified employees creates barriers to economic growth. That is why the Franklin Apprenticeships team has joined forces with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation to bring its Digital Apprenticeship program to the State.

MD Digital will help Maryland businesses of all sizes meet their current and future workforce needs – while helping Maryland citizens gain access to stable, in-demand, well paying middle skills careers.

The Skills Gap Has Gotten Wider, Especially In IT.  Employers And Job Seekers Alike Are Rethinking The Benefits Of Degree Programs And Looking For Alternatives.

  • 44% of IT positions require middle skills (more than high school education, but less than a 4-year degree).
  • 10x more technology jobs exist in U.S. compared to college/university tech grads.
  • 47% of HR leaders question higher education’s ability to produce employable graduates.

MD Digital is an employer-driven, 12 month managed workforce development program that involves no personal expense for apprentice candidates – eliminating the need for educational debt. In fact, apprenticeships are “earn while you learn” opportunities that offer full-time, paid employment from Day One.

For employers, recruitment, training, and dedicated, certified Success Coaches are included as part of the program. Digital Apprenticeships are the modern way to create, train, and retain loyal, skilled IT employees.

Limited opportunities are open to employers and job seekers. Contact us to learn more!

More and more, registered apprenticeship is being used in industries beyond the skilled building trades. The Maryland Department of Labor is pleased to collaborate with Franklin Apprenticeships to help IT businesses meet their future workforce needs for the occupations of IT Help Desk, Network Engineer and Cyber Security Specialists.
