New Apprenticeship Adds Tech Programs to Growing List of Department of Labor Registered … | News

San Antonio, Texas, Dec. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New Apprenticeship (NEW), an apprenticeship recognized by the Department of Labor, has added new technology occupations based on employer needs to help bridge the growing skills gap. These learning pathways have been created with industry experts and employers to prioritize areas of highest technical need within the 12+ month apprenticeship programme. Individuals can now enter an apprenticeship program in cyber security, software engineering, data operations or project management, in addition to the previous programs in digital marketing, cloud computing, data analytics and IT. New Apprenticeship offers enterprise employers an entry-level technology talent solution by producing trained and accelerated technology-ready talent, creating a diverse talent pipeline that improves retention.

The need for new talent pathways such as apprenticeships is huge. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (US BLS) projects that employment of information security analysts, for example, will grow by 35% between 2021 and 2031. Software development is projected to expand by 25% during the same period. By creating US Department of Labor registered apprenticeship programs in these fields, NEW is prepared to help achieve these growth targets by partnering with employers to upgrade community-based talent in these high-demand roles.

Most employers understand the importance of additional training and upgrading programs, not only to fill open positions, but to retain their employees. According to SHRM’s 2022 Workplace Learning & Development Trends report, 86% of HR managers believe training is beneficial in retaining talent. Yet more than half (55%) of employees say they need additional training to perform better in their role, according to the same study.

Despite the growing demand for technology talent, employers are struggling to muster the necessary resources to design and install an appropriate training model to advance the technology skills of their entry-level employees. “Employers have the experience and knowledge, but lack the resources, to create an integrated training model specifically designed to accelerate the growth of their early career employees,” said Brad Voeller, CEO of New Apprenticeship.

As more tech companies announce layoffs and the current economic uncertainty increases, companies may find it increasingly challenging to find the internal resources needed to effectively launch training programs. To fill both those gaps and ensure current and future demands are met by technology-ready talent, employers must strategically leverage partners who can help make that happen.
