The Value of Partnership
Through education, curriculum and industry involvement, our programs are empowering youth by providing them with the skills needed to excel in our digital economy. As the global demand increases for skilled IT workers, our youth lack the training and hands on learning that will allow them to successfully transition into the competitive workforce.
We are helping shape the Canadian economy by encouraging students to discover a career in information technology. A partnership with us means you can play an active role in bridging the gap between youth and employment, while encouraging Canada’s place in the 21st century.
Our middle and secondary school programs are found in over 200 schools nationwide and reach students learning in both French and English. Our recognized educational certificate program was built upon industry standards and advanced educational learning outcomes, therefore ensuring our graduates (over 5000 of them) are advanced, highly-skilled and industry ready workers.
With a partnership, you reach tomorrow’s workforce today, gain access to the youth market and make an impact on Canada’s future development.
The Value to Industry
Our programs are designed to engage students in more extensive learning about incorporating business skills and information and communications technology. It is a joint venture between the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), Canadian educators, and industries using ICT workers within a community.
Here’s why you should contribute to the programs:
- Today’s students are your future workforce.
- Exposure for your company or brand.
- University is too late.
- Network with local officials and other business.
- Become socially responsible with a ROI (return on investment).
- Opportunity to promote ICT careers.
- Help shape the future by being involved with youth and education.
The success of our programs is reliant on our diversified partners. We routinely seek new partnerships and avenues that will allow for the advancement and growth of our youth and education programs.
We are happy to offer different levels of partnership dependent upon areas of expertise that will help us succeed in expanding our programs and build upon ICTC’s initiatives.
ICTC is a centre of expertise in Digital Economy research, labour market intelligence, policy development, program management and delivery. Through our strong network of industry, academia and government, we enable the progress of Canada’s future economies by empowering industries to maintain a competitive advantage in a global market through a highly-skilled and innovative workforce.
