System z Apprentice Program

August 15, 2017

Long-time readers of this blog know I've often discussed the mainframe skills shortage and cited various initiatives that aim to attract the next generation of talent. I came across new organization while attending last month's SHARE conference: LEAD-IT (Leadership, Empowerment, Apprenticeship and Diversity in Information Technology).

I talked to a LEAD-IT representative, who told me that the organization helps companies process government grants to fund apprentice programs. These programs attempt to tap into underrepresented demographics to provide an alternative pathway into mainframe IT careers, outside the traditional four-year degree program.

If your company is seeking mainframe skills, I hope you mention LEAD-IT to your HR department.
