Description

Event featuring resources from:

Diana Elliott, Urban Institute

Olivia Herriford, City College of San Francisco

Orrian Willis, Tech SF, City and County of San Francisco

Apprenticeships are an important tool for developing talent that blend on-the-job training with technical instruction in the classroom. Competency-based apprenticeships ensure that the experience is high quality for both employers and employees because it emphasizes the successful demonstration of skills at the workplace.

Yet, competency-based apprenticeships are not yet commonly used in the tech community to fill job vacancies and to grow in-house talent. This event is designed to share best practices for implementing competency-based apprenticeships in tech. Presentations will feature how to use existing competency-based occupational frameworks to build a program, the resources available from the City and County of San Francisco to help start an apprenticeship program, and examples from City College of San Francisco of success stories from their cyber-security support technician program. A discussion panel will feature the presenters, as well as employers and an apprentice, to share the practical realities of apprenticeship programs and to answer questions.

Representatives will be available after the event’s conclusion to provide technical assistance to those interested in starting their own programs.
