These students were selected through formal interviews and a test and will go through the web and mobile curriculum. They will have a chance to learn the tricks of the trade through hands-on development of a web application and a mobile app.
Many thanks to our NOVA colleagues for your support in identifying the candidates.
NOVA Credentials to Careers initiative is a partnership between NOVA, nonprofit workforce development organizations, and local information technology (IT) employers to provide high performing education and training programs leading to credentials and a career in IT for TAA (Trade Adjustment Assistance) impacted workers and other adult workers (unemployed or underemployed, low-wage, dislocated, military or veteran).
Led by a large regional cluster of IT contractors, Northern Virginia’s employers have a massive demand for skilled IT professionals that exceeds the current IT talent workforce. To meet the demand for educated and prepared employees, the Department of Labor – NOVA Credentials to Careers Consortium has come together to build the gateway of IT and STEM careers.
