CONQUER YOUR FUTURE THROUGH REAL-WORLD LEARNING

UNIQUE LEARNING EXPERIENCES THAT YOU CAN’T GET IN SCHOOL BUT COMPANIES NEED YOU TO HAVE.

FEATURED WORKSHOPS FROM THE WORLD’S MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANIES:

THE BIG PROBLEM
WITH TRADITIONAL
EDUCATION OPTIONS

null

Today there are more job opportunities in technology than ever.

And while there's never been more opportunity to get a start in technology, at the same time, it’s also never been more competitive.

Young students want to learn about technology and seize these growing opportunities, yet many are completely overwhelmed and unsure exactly where to begin. Maybe you’re there too?

Stuck procrastinating as you go back and forth on what to study, where to study and trying to decide which one feels “right”? All while wondering if having a qualification is even enough anymore.

And we totally get it.

Nobody wants to waste time and money. Especially if they truly don’t have the time or money to waste!

Imagine how energizing it feels when your work is your passion? But how do you know if it’s your passion if you haven’t had the chance to experience it yet?

With all the changes going on in the world right now, it's clear that the idea of “going to college and getting a job”, isn’t as secure as we once thought.

If you take a look at the entry-level job opportunities available, you probably noticed most require 2+ years experience... for an entry-level job?

Businesses are looking for more than just paper qualifications, they’re looking for future leaders, those who have taken their education into their own hands and gained real-world experience.

And students now more than ever before are looking for ways to gain that experience.

So how can you make sure you’re developing highly sought-after skills that employers are hiring for?

And entering into a field that you’re actually passionate about?

REAL EXPERIENCES FROM REAL STUDENTS

“This was the best program I've ever been to, and probably the best I will ever go to. Everything about it was beyond my expectation. from high-level instruction to new activities every day.”

- Emily M.

“The team at WorkED allowed me to fully realize the opportunity within failure. Trying and trying again, no matter the outcome, is the epitome of success. As a person who has always dealt with failure negatively, I have continued to seek the opportunity for growth and improvement after my Summer Externship series."

- Hanz D.

The skills gap is real and many employers are left unable to hire the staff they NEED right now simply because no one applying has the ability to succeed in the role.

Meaning, when you’re ready to enter the workforce, you won’t just have an advantage over your peers, you’ll be sought after by leading companies.

GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

01: What is an externship?

Our externships are educational programs that teach students about high-paying careers. These are live online classes with other students, instructors, and professionals taking place after school and over the summer. We call them externships because they’re a short deep dive into a specific career similar to an internship, but where internships are normally only available for a small group of people, our externships provide a similar opportunity that’s available for everyone.

02: What am I going to get out of this?

Then Technology Fundamentals Externship is perfect for you. This experience will give you valuable insights into the different area’s you could enter meaning, you don’t wast 4+ years on a tertiary education that doesn’t end up being what you want to work in.

03: Who is this program for?

Then Technology Fundamentals Externship is perfect for you. This experience will give you valuable insights into the different area’s you could enter meaning, you don’t wast 4+ years on a tertiary education that doesn’t end up being what you want to work in.

04: How do I sign up?

On our website, pick which career you’re interested in exploring and check when our next session for that program is available. We have sessions every month running after school, as well as sessions running over the summer. So sign up for the one that works best for you!

05: Are the classes beginner friendly?

Then Technology Fundamentals Externship is perfect for you. This experience will give you valuable insights into the different area’s you could enter meaning, you don’t wast 4+ years on a tertiary education that doesn’t end up being what you want to work in.

06: Who teaches the programs?

Our programs are taught by real industry professionals that have experience in the field. You’ll be able to experience what it's really like to work in the industry along side them and you can rest easy knowing that what you’re learning is what you’ll really need to know in the real world. You’ll also be hearing from a variety of industry professionals throughout the program so you can get a sense of the different roles that exist out there and network as you evolve towards starting your career.

07: Will I get school credit for this?

You cannot get school credit for this program right now, however, we’ve intentionally designed the program this way so we can more effectively teach students what they need to know. The reality is, if this program were worth school credit, we’d have to spend the entire program preparing our students for a test that determines whether or not they “learned something” here. We want to spend our time preparing students for the real world and giving them hands-on experiences, and while students can’t get credit, we think we’re giving them something much more valuable.

08: Will this fit into my schedule?

We get that students these days have busy schedules, so we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to jump into the program. Most of our programs take place after school or during a Summer break. Our after school Externships are usually 4 pm - 6 pm PST Monday through Friday which is 7pm - 9pm Eastern, held over two weeks to make it as accessible as possible. This is held over 2 weeks making it as accessible as possible for all to join with no during school day restrictions. We also have Summer programs which are held during the day. That combines to 20 hours of learning with us, at two hours a day so we can keep the content from being too overwhelming.
