Workforce Opportunity Services Announces Launch Of Apprenticeship Program Focusing On Information Technology
This results-based program, created by the WOS Industry Advisory Board, aims to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity with a diverse talent pipeline
Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS)- a leading non-profit organization connecting individuals from underserved populations with transformative career opportunities- recently announced the launch of its results-oriented WOS Apprenticeship Program, created by its Workforce Opportunity Services Industry Advisory Board.
This premium two-year program has been designed to provide practical learning work experience to a highly talented technology-focused college graduate pool from underrepresented communities, as well as veterans with advanced training in information technology.
By creating this Apprenticeship Program, the WOS Advisory Board establishes a commitment to work with sponsor partners in guiding a participant’s progress through mentorship and professional development. During this time, program sponsors receive high-quality candidates at a smaller budget which will increase productivity and creativity in a short period of time and for a fraction of the industry rate- thus taking away the main risks of a new hire.

A key distinction of the Apprenticeship Program from similar initiatives in the industry is that it also delivers advanced training at a competitive salary, offering participants the skills and credentials employers in the industry value the most. Simultaneously, clients receive a talent development pipeline focused on diversification in support of their organization’s Diversity & Inclusion strategies and initiatives.
Stuart Kippelman, WOS Industry Advisory Board Chairman, stated, “This new Apprenticeship Program will be a game-changer for those who are accepted into the program, and for the companies that participate. The two-year program will transform careers for veterans and the underrepresented while delivering immediate results to partner companies.”
