Using Apprenticeships to Develop IT Talent
This hour-long webinar starting at 10:00am ET will feature two presenters implementing innovative apprenticeships in IT Coding and Cybersecurity:
Heather Terenzio, CEO of Techtonic Group and Tectonic Academy, started the Software Developer Apprenticeship Program to address talent deficiencies in software development. Techtonic Group operates a proprietary system to identify promising developer talent, help apprentices develop increasingly complex skills and prepare them for full-time employment.
Girish Seshagiri, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at ISHPI, partnered with the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute to start a U.S. Dept. of Labor Computer Programming for Secure Software/Cybersecurity Registered Apprenticeship. The program offers a standard college curriculum for secure software development resulting in a two-year degree for program graduates.
