NPower, a national nonprofit providing free technology training and job placement assistance, announces the launch of a large-scale partnership with the US Department of Labor (US DOL), Office of Apprenticeship and the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE), officially recognizing NPower St. Louis as a registered Apprenticeship Trainer for Information Technology (IT) Generalist Apprenticeships. This designation is the first of its kind for Missouri and follows the IT Generalist Apprenticeship programs previously introduced by NPower in New Jersey, California and Texas, and places St. Louis among the first cities in the nation to offer this type of apprenticeship.
St. Louis area program and employment partners and representatives from the US DOL will be in attendance for the announcement.
“The US Dept. of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship is proud to register NPower as the newest apprenticeship program in the Information Technology Industry here in St. Louis. This program demonstrates how business, educational institutes, state and local government collaborate to strengthen America’s workforce and our local economy.
NPower is among a growing number of organizations that are unlocking the potential of apprenticeship. While most think of apprenticeships for skilled trades, many other industries are increasingly adopting this training model. These organizations are making others take notice, contributing to a momentum that has far-reaching benefits for workers and businesses both locally and nationally.” – Stephanie…
