Employers, Check Out Tech Jobs Rule Apprenticeship Program

Tech Jobs Rule

AMP/Tech Jobs Rule is an apprenticeship program with the Dr. James A. Forrest Technology Center, The Patuxent Partnership, some TPP member companies, and the Strategic Education Office of NAWCAD. Employers interested in the program should fill out a 2023-2024 industry request form here.

Talented tech center students who are interested in skilled work in manufacturing, business operations, and STEM fields are given paid apprenticeship opportunities with local industry and the government. These organizations assess the demand for skilled workers in specific areas.

When there is a need for specific work expertise, paid apprenticeship opportunities are established. Students who will be entering their final year of high school and have completed at least one to two years at the Forrest Center, are eligible to apply for these apprenticeship opportunities. There is an interview process after which, in conjunction with student resumes and academic performance, students are hired.

Note: 2022 to 2023, Tech Jobs Rule graduated 41 apprentices.

Mary Jane Selph is the Tech Jobs Rule apprenticeship coordinator for The Patuxent Partnership. She may be reached at [email protected].
