CUNY TechWorks is an industry-driven strategy to develop and sustain the next generation of workers who will enter jobs within the IT industry. By engaging the most influential stakeholders, CTW will develop curricula and training opportunities that speak to the needs of employers and employees, alike. The consortium, a collaboration between CUNY's Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Programs (CUNY CEWP), and the Borough of Manhattan, Kingsborough and Queensborough Community Colleges, was formed in response to a US Department of Labor America's Promise grant program. America's Promise has granted select programs to prepare workers for entry into the most in-demand jobs in high-growth industries by bringing together key stakeholders--employers, workforce and economic development organizations, community colleges, job training programs and community-based organizations.
CTW has three main operating goals:
Employers will play a central role in the curriculum development so as to ensure that training is relevant to their needs and those of the identified job titles. Moreover, CTW will prepare faculty to deliver up-to-date coursework and information to better advise students on career options and career advancement. Through the development and delivery of employer-informed applied skills training, CTW seeks to better integrate practical industry competencies into relevant A.A.S. degree pathways.
