Web Apprenticeships: How & Why We Do Them

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The web industry needs to grow talent—not just consume it.
For the would-be web developer, getting started in the trade can be an intimidating process. The traditional education system has been unable to keep pace with innovation, leaving interested coders on their own to learn. For the employer, finding hands equipped and ready to contribute to a team is an equally painstaking process due to a shallow and scattered talent pool.
An apprenticeship framework is a great solution for both problems. At Sparkbox, we’re resurrecting this ancient practice, retrofitting it for our fast-moving industry, and we're eager to share the things we've learned on the journey so far.
