Franklin Apprenticeships Is Working To Solve The Digital Talent Shortage

Franklin Digital Apprenticeships Team with The Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Office through the Apprenticeship Innovation Fund

The digital talent gap is widening across all sectors, especially in entry-level, middle-skill occupations. That is why The Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Office through the Apprenticeship Innovation Fund has partnered with Franklin Apprenticeships to help solve Maryland’s IT workforce crisis.

Do you know: Apprentices receive a reduced wage until acquired skills and milestones are met?  For most employers, that represents $10,000 of saved new hire wages.

Do you need access to committed learners anxious to prove their value year over year?

  • Attract a diverse pool of job-ready/career ready candidates
