The Franklin Apprenticeships Digital Pre-Apprenticeship Programs are designed as a bridge to a new technology career, perfect for students with less tech experience, those new to the workforce, or those looking to add skills while searching for work.
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 technology 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 also a direct pipeline to full-time positions with our employer partners. Employers love the fact that successful pre-apprentices have already completed a short-term course of classes, passed a certification, 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’ll have a Personal Success Coach to guide you and monitor your progress. Plus, a pre-apprenticeship will cost you nothing. You can choose from an IT Fundamentals track in our partnership with UMBC, or the IBM Z® mainframe/enterprise computing pre-apprenticeship.
