Kenzie’s game-changing apprenticeship program enables students to transition from learning to working upon completion of their immersive training. We curate a set of mock projects that expose students to a variety or real world problems.
Students report to a technical manager and work in a collaborative team setting. Students learn how to interact and set expectations with mock clients. Students gain valuable workplace skills in critical thinking, creative problem solving, empathy, and communications.
Students develop their portfolio and hone their technical skills during apprenticeship. Students can choose an area of specialization and continue to develop deep expertise while working on relevant projects. Those who are ready for job placement may exit the apprenticeship at any time and receive their final certificate.
The apprenticeship is free for existing students and generally unpaid. We focus on providing last-mile work training to better prepare our students for job placement. Students who are ready to jump-start their careers can skip the apprenticeship or exit mid-point when they land a job.
