Training for the New Collar Worker

IBM Training and Skills actively supports our New Collar initiatives with innovative offerings to develop a robust talent pool for our clients and Business Partners. We provide up-to-the-minute IT industry knowledge and digital credentials which complement the institutional knowledge developed in higher learning organizations.

With technology evolving so rapidly, it becomes harder for organizations to find candidates with the right skills to fill thousands of open IT jobs. Much of today’s IT work requires specific skills and knowledge, but may not require a university degree. Here is where IBM’s New Collar Initiatives fit in: New Collar focuses on skills (not degrees earned) around emerging technologies, including cybersecurity, design, data science, mobile development, cloud, support and project management. The IBM Skills Gateway provides training for New Collar workers looking to differentiate themselves in the marketplace through the achievement of IT skills.

If you work with higher education, re-skilling, veteran’s programs, community outreach, government agencies or customer accounts, you can ensure your clients are aware of this valuable training opportunity. Visit the Skills Gateway to find out more!

If you have questions or feedback please feel free to reach out to us.
