Work Based Learning

SynED’s program is designed to develop a mature and self sustaining training and placement model in participating organizations to accelerate  progression from aptitude to job placement. 

Program Approach

SynED works with your organization to design a personnel development structure that can include all components under one roof or be a coalition of organizations to offer on-the-job experience and training for IT and cybersecurity candidates. We coach you on how to take advantage of optional funding sources such as State and Federal Department of Labor apprenticeship programs sources available in your location. Additionally, we will help you find and connect with candidate pools from Community Colleges,  Universities, High School vocational programs and other private sources. 

Your Role

Success will only happen if the program satisfies the objectives of both you and your customers. We expect that this program will become a sustainable and profitable part of your business allowing you to expand your customer base. This will also help you provide expanded services to your customers by supporting their cybersecurity and compliance needs if they are unable to maintain dedicated full-time professionals.

There are multiple models that can be successful and ultimately it is up to your organization to determine the best model, or models, for you.
