Per Scholas Partners with Wilkes Community College to Train Individuals Across North Carolina
Per Scholas North Carolina launched its first cohort in partnership with Wilkes Community College (WCC) with seventeen learners selected from over 100 applicants to study software engineering. Wilkes Community College has partnered with NC Tech Paths to offer Per Scholas’ tech-free training to individuals in North Carolina. “We see this (NC Tech Paths Inc.) as a game-changer for our students and our region, especially for many local people now with no opportunity for a job with a living wage,” said Dr. Jeff Cox, WCC president.
The inaugural cohort with this software engineering training will graduate in May and the learners will not just have technical and applicable industry skills, but technical experience interacting with employers in orientation, mock interviews, professional development and other ways to make them workforce-ready upon graduation.
