San Antonio, Texas, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New Apprenticeship (NEW) will partner with Tech Quest Apprenticeship, a national initiative led by Clark University’s School of Professional Studies, to provide tech and digital marketing pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships to unemployed, underemployed, and incumbent workers through 2023.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer and technology careers expect to see a 13% growth between 2020 and 2030, adding around 667,000 jobs to the economy. At the same time, minority groups in the tech industry continue to experience vast underrepresentation. Technology bootcamp programs geared toward underrepresented groups often cost thousands of dollars and remain unattainable to low or no-income individuals.
Eighty-one percent of NEW apprentices are underrepresented groups in the tech industry. Together, Tech Quest and NEW are able to offer exceptional training programs at no cost, expanding their mission to open and grow opportunities to and for diverse applicants across the country.
Statement from Brad Voeller, CEO, New Apprenticeship:
“NEW provides enterprise employers with an integrated entry-level tech talent solution, enabling them to build their own talent pipeline instead of having to buy experienced talent. We are excited to partner with Clark University and their Tech Quest Apprenticeship program to further accelerate apprenticeship adoption and provide talent for our employers’ individual workforce needs, while opening doors to capable, diverse talent.”
Statement from Dug Jones, Program Director, Tech Quest Apprenticeship:
“Apprenticeships are the perfect vehicle and New Apprenticeship is the perfect partner to maximize this opportunity to help develop young people for careers in tech and digital marketing.”
Tech Quest Apprenticeship and NEW partner to maximize the impact of their grant funding from the Office of Apprenticeship within the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
NEW and Tech Quest are providing apprenticeship programs in the following fields: IT ServiceNow, Data Analytics, Digital Marketing, and cloud computing. Tech Quest’s grant funding focuses on eight states: California, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and Texas. NEW offers existing and future relationships with employers and training providers in Texas, Indiana, and beyond to support Tech Quest’s efforts as well as create sustainable employment opportunities for the workers that reside in these communities.

Clark University is working with the Public Consulting Group (PCG) and a national consortium of workforce development boards to provide 4,000 pre-apprenticeships and 1,000 information technology (IT) and IT-related apprenticeships to thousands of individuals in eight states through 2023.
