Franklin Apprenticeships announced today, May 20, 2019, a press release communicating the benefits of a new partnership with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation to bring its Digital Apprenticeship program to the State. The program is a response to the growing demand from Maryland employers who need assistance filling their talent pipeline with skilled tech workers – one of the most important workforce issues facing businesses, today.
The Digital Apprenticeships program applies a proven model that builds a motivated, skilled workforce by attracting, training, and certifying a diverse pool of career ready, job-ready candidates. Program participants receive recruitment, on boarding, and mentoring support — including certified Success Coaches to maximize apprenticeship completion, industry certification, and success rates.
Initial candidate roles are focused on IT Help Desk, but plans are underway for expansion into Network Engineer and Cyber Security Specialists.
