Work-Based Learning Can Help Increase Digital Tech Talent in the Capital Region

The Capital CoLAB partnered with HEI to conduct a landscape analysis of digital tech work-based learning (WBL) efforts in the Capital Region. The scan focused on identifying the spectrum of WBL models implemented, WBL platforms and tools utilized, promising practices guiding the design and delivery of quality WBL, and key WBL stakeholders throughout the region. WBL can help meet the region’s digital tech talent needs. WBL allows employers, educators, intermediaries, and other key stakeholders to expand the digital tech workforce by providing learners with meaningful training and workplace experience, ultimately supporting increased exposure to, navigation of, and participation in digital technology career pathways.
