Are you looking for a way to expand and diversify your cybersecurity talent pool and plan for succession? Are you a training provider looking for ways to better engage with business to equip learners with the valuable cybersecurity-related skills? During this interactive workshop, we’ll dig into the importance of work-based learning as a tool to train, and retain cybersecurity talent; learn how businesses can assess what training options might best fit their needs; and how you can enhance programs to ensure that it effectively draws in and supports underserved populations. With the trend towards skills-based hiring, it is now more essential than ever to equip career seekers with this hands-on experience.
In addition to learning more about the continuum of work-based learning opportunities, participants will do a deep dive into Registered Apprenticeship, the “gold standard” of work-based learning. After filling out a general readiness assessment form for getting plugged into the world of work-based learning, the session will include practical next steps on getting started on the journey of being a Registered Apprenticeship sponsor, training provider, or equity partner. They will then learn about the many flexibilities of setting up a program and the resources available to get started.
